Rachel Allison, the Lib Dem candidate in the Highgate by-election, is thanking residents in Highgate and across Haringey for their huge response to their local petition to save Post Offices from closure – but says that every objection is vital if the devastating closure plans are to be defeated.
In just over a week, over 800 people have signed the Lib Dems’ on-line petition, and responses from angry residents have also been flooding back to Liberal Democrat headquarters. Rachel Allison is inviting as many residents as possible to sign the Lib Dems’ borough-wide petition: http://ourcampaign.org.uk/haringeypostoffices
Rachel Allison comments:
“The Government’s closure programme is madness. I hope as many people as possible will sign the Lib Dem petition to protect our local branch network, in Highgate and across Haringey.
“In the case of Highgate, it is outrageous to suggest that we should have a High Street without a Post Office. Local residents, other shops and the entire High Street depend on our Post Office. We will fight to keep it.”
