Drumchapel Post Office under threat of closure

Post Office Limited has announced that the Post Office on Hecla Avenue in Drumchapel is under threat of closure.

This Post Office provides a vital service for many local residents, the loss of which would have a detrimental impact on the wider community in Drumchapel as well as causing concern for staff.

Whilst there is the opportunity to franchise the current office, this could endanger the ongoing provision of services and jobs in the local area, as well as the branch’s current convenient location in the heart of the community.

Commenting, Carol Monaghan MP said:

“I recently visited the Drumchapel Post Office on Hecla Avenue with Cllr Malcolm Balfour. With the threat of its potential closure I was keen to meet and talk with local residents who use this vital service and to discuss their concerns. It was noticeable just how busy the counters were and how strong the community feels. I have now written to the Post Office to convey my concerns and I will do all that I can to protect this important facility.”

A petition, set up by Carol Monaghan, is now available and will be sent to Paula Vennells, Chief Executive of Post Office Limited.  Please sign and share:
