"Done deal" anger over closure  of Whitfield Post Office  

10 May 2013

North East councillor Brian Gordon has condemned the decision to close the Post Office in the Whitfield shopping centre, saying that it was a "done deal" despite a consultation held by the Post Office.

400 people signed an online petition opposing the closure.

Councilor Gordon said,

" People who signed the petition will be devastated.

  • "Those who live in Lower Whitfield will be forced to cross three busy roads to get to the new post office.

  • "Many of them just aren't prepared, either through fear or inability, to walk through the centre of Whitfield.

  • "I feel sorry for the people who took the time to organise a protest against the closure and who have been ignored"
