Post plan panned

I AM absolutely blown away at the plans to move St Neots post office from its current venue to Martins. As a mother with a pushchair, Martins is one of the only shops in St Neots that I avoid like the plague. No disrespect to the people that work there,

I AM absolutely blown away at the plans to move St Neots post office from its current venue to Martins.

As a mother with a pushchair, Martins is one of the only shops in St Neots that I avoid like the plague.

No disrespect to the people that work there, but with its awkward double doors, slopes, cramped aisles, grubby tiled floors and general gloominess, I would rather walk to the other side of town to Woolworth's to buy my papers, Lottery tickets etc.

I visit the post office at least three times a week as I sell a lot on eBay and, it doesn't matter what day or time I go, there is always a large queue.

However, I have to say the current staff are fantastic - they are always friendly, happy, and the queues certainly don't take long to go down because they are so efficient.

But on some days, like a Tuesday/Thursday morning, the queue is to the door. How on earth is Martins going to cope with that?

A town the size of St Neots certainly warrants a separate post office. Huntingdon and St Ives both have one and, even when Huntingdon didn't, the post office was in Woolworth's, which is a large store with wide aisles and automatic doors - the opposite of Martins.

I will certainly be signing the petition and contacting Tony Marsh, network services manager at the Post Office and only hope that the folk of St Neots do, too.
