Midlothian North MSP, Colin Beattie, has lobbied the Post Office to discuss the temporary disruption of service to the people in Bonnyrigg and surrounding areas after the announcement that they will close the doors to the local Post Office on 1st October.
Commenting Mr Beattie said: “I understand that many Bonnyrigg residents will feel frustrated and upset at the loss of their nearest Post Office. The situation is not ideal but I understand the Post Office are working hard to find a suitable location to set up another local branch.
“Your nearest Post Office branches are Eskbank Trading, Eskbank and High Street, Dalkeith.
“Unfortunately with the recent closure of the RBS in Bonnyrigg this is another massive inconvenience to the community and I will continue to monitor the situation and keep in touch with the Post Office to ensure the inconvenience is reduced to a minimum.”
