Alliance North Down Councillor Andrew Muir has called for Royal Mail to replace a post box at Station Road, Craigavad that had been removed after it was damaged by a lorry.
Councillor Muir said: “The loss of this post box has proven to be a real inconconvenience for residents. Despite representations made, Royal Mail have outlined that they do not intend to replace it and instead are suggesting residents visit nearby locations such as the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum to post letters. In this digital age I would have thought the Post Office would be keen to make it easier for residents to use their services rather than put obstacles in the way.
“I have been in contact with the Royal Mail Chief Executive requesting they reconsider this decision and am gathering petition signatures to pass on to show there is public demand for this post box to be returned.”
