LANGNEY Post Office closes on July 20 – and locals are furious.

It’s closing because of a dispute over a new lease.

Here’s John Titmus on the Facebook page: “Disgusted to hear the post office is closing it is a community asset and should have a viable lease renewal. It should not be all about the bottom line on a spreadsheet.”

One shop owner, Joanna Shaw Burchartz, replied: “We own a shop there and we need people to know about all the shops and businesses there. We too are sad to see the post office go, but any grievances need to be directed to the management not the Facebook page.”

Sally Brocklehurst posted: “Disgusted to hear post office is closing How do you expect older people to manage? Too many shops empty .All the money the owner has spent on the one end of the shopping centre and the other end looks crab.”
