Town council backs call to save Ludlow post office from closure

Ludlow Town Council said the closure of the post office would be a major blow to the economy.

Tesco is planning to close the busy post office in their One-Stop shop on Tower Street, Ludlow.   

The town centre post office is Ludlow’s main post office and the closure would be a major blow to the local economy and to the services which many people rely on. 

Ludlow Town Council said: "It is a busy Post Office and an important place for the local residents and businesses.  It provides vital services including access to pensions, banking services for residents and businesses, access to forms for passports and other services for people who are not online, holiday cash, and dispatch of parcels for residents and businesses."

"Ludlow’s Tower Street Post Office is a vital community service.  The reason behind Tesco’s decision to close is unknown but, the impact on the people of Ludlow will be devastating. "

Local councillors are encouraging people to contact Ludlow MP Phillip Dunne and to email the CEO of Tesco Matthew Barnes.
