"Like them, I was shocked to learn of the closure, and am concerned about the impact on those who used this Post Office and the others further out in Leamington, Lillington and Whitnash. I understand that it was not a planned closure and it came as a result of an audit.

"The Post Office tell me they are doing what they can to try to find someone to run the post office on a temporary basis but this will take some time.

"I have written asking them to consider transferring back to the old Crown Post Office on Victoria Terrace, which I understand they still own.”

Customers are being advised to use other branches nearby including the ones at 69 Clarendon Street in Leamington, 9 Stanley Court in Sydenham or in Heathcote Road, Whitnash.
