Post Office Closures
The closure of Post Offices around East Renfrewshire over recent years has caused concern and difficulty for residents. This latest planned closure of the PO in Eaglesham Rd, Clarkston (not Eaglesham as the article says) is yet another blow to residents who rely on the postal and cash services offered. Disproportionately, these are older and less mobile residents who can’t just hop in the car to go elsewhere. I’ve written to the PO seeking more info and assurances that all options will be considered to retain a service, and I have joined the joined All Party Group focussed on this issue. We can’t keep losing vital services like this.
