Duart Crescent Post Office has been saved following a community council campaign supported by Edinburgh Western MSP Alex Cole-Hamilton. The counter is expected to be open within the next week following its sudden closure last month.
MSP for Edinburgh Western Alex Cole-Hamilton said:
“This is a tremendous victory for residents and the community council.
“The Post Office and the Caledonian News is a much loved fixture in the community. The closure had serious repercussions, particularly for the elderly and infirm who struggle to get about.
“I’m delighted Post Office UK listened to the concerns voiced in the campaign, and I hope this counter will not face further threat going forward.”
