It has raised the issue on the part of readers and local councillors who are rallying to stop the closure of this vital service in our communities.

I have lived in Sutton for 14 years and regularly use the One Stop Shop that has integrated the Post Office. My wife and I are old age pensioners and would have great trouble if the Post Office closed.

It is the hub of the village and the friendly and often overworked staff are always happy to give advice on pensions, TV licences, car tax and utility bills. If it wasn't for shops like One Stop a lot more Post Offices would have closed.
