Letter sent to Post Office chairman:

Your PA sent me an acknowledgement dated April 26 in response to my letter of April 23 to you complaining about the closure of Fleet Hargate Post Office.

The letter, addressing me as ‘Dear Mrs Woolgate’, informed me that ‘someone will get back to you once their enquiries are completed’. So far I have heard nothing.

A friend told me a reply was published in a local paper. Since our post office was removed, I no longer have access to local or any other papers.
