The following is the text of a press release issued by the Rt. Hon. David Jones M.P. on 17 December 2015.
MP CONCERNED ABOUT CLOSURE OF POST OFFICE
Clwyd West MP, David Jones, has written to the Post Office to express concern at the potential closure of the Penmaenrhos branch office in Abergele Road, Old Colwyn.
Owing to the illness of the postmaster, the branch will be closing temporarily on 19 January 2016. The Post Office will now be exploring options to enable the branch to be reopened, but a reduced service may be put in its place.
David Jones said:
“The Penmaenrhos post office serves a relatively large community in Old Colwyn and is an important community asset.
“I have written to the Post Office expressing my keenness to see it reopened, but have said that if there is any danger of closure or reduced service, I would expect to have a meeting with Post Office Ltd in order to discuss all possible options.”
