We must keep Bengeworth Post Office

This cannot be allowed to Happen !

We have only until 6th October to make a difference, and we all CAN make a difference, please read below.

This weeks announcement that Bengewort Post Office in Northwick Road is to close must be challenged.

This Post Office is so important to the Bengeworth community.Think- last years floods, they were open and available to all in the area when Eveshams main office was simply not accessible, what will happen next time the floods come if this facility is closed.

But more importantly- many of our older residents are on this side of the river, and have been served well by Pearl and her staff for decades.These older people simply cannot walk up the hill to the High Street, and back up the hill of Port street.

There is no bus service from Bengeworth to Evesham- so whilst this will be good news for Taxi firms it will take more money from the small pensions of our senior residents- who will then be more likely to spend it at the High Street end of town,this in turn will affect the economy of the Bengeworth area.

Proposals for even more housing in this area make the decision even more ridiculous.

What can you do ??

You can and must object to this proposal, and Pearl assures me that every letter written directly carries as much weight as100 names on a petition, so get writing;

I suggest you write one letter, copy it 8 times and send it to the following;

  1. FREEPOST CONSULTATION TEAM (This is the full address- Freepost - No Stamp needed)
  2. Peter Luff MP, House of Commons, London SW1A 0AA
  3. Emma Stokes ( Local Councillor) Civic Centre, Queen Elizabeth Drive,Pershore, Worcs WR10 1PT
  4. Martin King ( Local Councillor) Civic Centre, Queen Elizabeth Drive,Pershore, Worcs WR10 1PT
  5. Bengeworth County Councillors,County Hall, Spetchley Rd, Worcester. WR5 2NP
  6. The Editor, Evesham Observer,7 King Charles Court, Evesham, WR11 4RF
  7. The Editor, Evesham Journal, Sapphire House, Crab Apple Way, Vale Park, Evesham WR11 1GP
  8. Vernon Powell, Chairman, VECTA,C/o Vale Kitchens, 54 Cheltenham Rd, Evesham. WR11 2JZ

Please do this, and do it today- the clock is ticking and YOU can SAVE THIS POST OFFICE, but YOU must take action.
