MP concern over sorting office ‘deal’

Have your say

QUESTIONS still remain unanswered over the future of Holbeach Sorting Office, according to South Holland and the Deepings MP John Hayes.

He intends to meet Royal Mail over the proposal to close the Barrington Gate office next summer.

He says the planned meeting in January remains unchanged, despite it being revealed last week the office is now “under offer”.

Mr Hayes had met representatives from the firm just weeks earlier, along with councillors, to discuss the closure. He asked them about their business plan and alternative arrangements for Holbeach.

Mr Hayes said: “I had asked them to come back to me with answers and the plan was to do so early next year.”
