Andrew Stephenson MP has reacted disappointingly to the announcement from Post Office Limited that Brierfield Post Office will temporarily close on Wednesday 25th September 5.30pm. This decision was made following the resignation of the Post Master.
Commenting on the announcement Andrew Stephenson MP said, “Clearly this will be disappointing news for many residents in Brierfield for whom the Post Office provides an invaluable service. The Post Office have informed me they are committed to retaining a branch in Brierfield and they are currently investigating a series of options. I will do everything I can to ensure a Post Office provision is returned to Brierfield as quickly as possible. Between 1997 and 2010 Pendle lost 17 post offices and 5,000 were lost across the country, thankfully since 2010 the closures have been stopped, but the temporary closure will be of concern to many.”
