“I am disappointed at CJ Lang’s intention to close the Woodburn Post Office branch. I firmly believe post offices offer vital services which are important to preserving our communities and ensuring that those living here have the facilities that they need.
“I have requested a meeting with both CJ Lang to discuss this decision and the Post Office to discuss possible alternatives.
“In the meantime, I do hope CJ Lang accept the on-going support being given by the Post Office and review their decision to close this branch.”
