Following the sudden closure of the Fryern Hill Post Office, Winchester and Chandler’s Ford MP Steve Brine has given an update via his Facebook post.
“Thank you to constituents who have contacted me this week after the sudden closure of the PO at Fryern Hill in Chandler’s Ford. Had a confidential briefing from the Post Office this morning to understand what’s gone on here. Suffice to say, while I understand the temptation to grandstand and stir this up, it’s very complex and is extremely unlikely to be resolved this side of Christmas.
Am working with the PO and sorry not to bring better news but it’s my job as your elected MP to tell it straight and not give false hope this can be fixed by any of us shouting loudly. Will keep constituents updated.” (25th October 2019)
The Fryern Hill post office was officially closed on the 23rd of October 2019.
