Ruffley welcomes reopening of Fornham All Saints Post Office

Tuesday, 4 October, 2005

David Ruffley MP has welcomed confirmation today from Royal Mail that Fornham All Saints Post Office will reopen on 28 October 2005. Following the closure of the branch in July, local residents had been concerned that it would spell the end of this valuable service. The new proprietor is successful newsagent Trevor Whitehouse of Court News in Bury St Edmunds.

David said:

' I have actively campaigned on the need for rural post offices and it gives me great pleasure that my constituents in Fornham All Saints will not be losing this essential service after all.

' Our rural post offices play an important part in village life. They are at the heart of a local community and should be accessible to everyone. I wish Trevor Whitehouse every success with this new venture and I hope he brings the level of success he has enjoyed elsewhere to Fornham All Saints.'
