Losing Post Office is big blow to Amlwch, says AM

Responding to closure of Amlwch Post Office, Anglesey AM Rhun ap Iorwerth said:

“Losing the Post Office is a big blow to Amlwch. Only weeks ago, HSBC announced its intention to close its branch in the town, with customers being told they should access their accounts through the Post Office! I warned in an Assembly debate on banking just a few weeks ago that there was uncertainty over the future of the Amlwch Post Office, and I wrote to Post Office Ltd raising those concerns.

“Although Post Office Ltd says its determined to restore a service in the town at the ‘earliest opportunity’, it’s very disappointing that this could not have been resolved earlier. I’ll be keeping up the pressure on the Post Office to find a new provider as soon as possible – this is a service that Amlwch cannot do without.”
