LETTER: Local post pick-up point totally essential for Holbeach residents

HAVING had to call in the Barrington Gate sorting office to collect an underpaid item, it occurred to me that if the Royal Mail have decided where to locate the new pick-up point then they are keeping very quiet about it.

Perhaps they intend to spring it on an unsuspecting public just before the office closes for good.

All I would say is that it might be OK for me to make a 14-mile round trip to Spalding to collect the odd item – but I’m also very sure that in a lot of cases it will be very awkward for residents.

I’m sure that this has been mentioned before but a local pick-up point is essential for residents and needs to be kept on repeating.
