MEADS Community Association says the possible loss of the Post Office is ‘a great concern’ in Meads.

The Co-op is closing down in February. It’s not clear if the Post Office – situated in the Co-op building – will remain.

Here’s the MCA: “We are now trying to find out whether the Post Office is staying and will let you all know when this becomes clear.

We will also do everything we can to find out which retailer is taking it over.There is no doubt that the Meads Street Co-op has a special place in the heart of our community, and we will be extremely sad to see it go after all these years.

We also hope that the company does as it says and that the staff will be supported.

The possible loss of the Post Office is also a cause for great concern as it plays such an important role in community life.

Be assured that the MCA is now ‘on the case’ and will keep you all informed of our progress.”
