ONE of the biggest campaigns to save a Huntingdonshire post office is set to be fought in Great Gransden.

Post Office Ltd is bracing itself for a barrage of petitions and complaints from the village, which has already formed a campaign group.

Postmistress Balbir Basra said: "We have a lot of elderly folk here. We are expecting a very big campaign to keep the branch open."

District councillor Barbara Boddington added: "This would be devastating for Great Gransden and the surrounding villages."
