David Stewart MSP

Lochalsh Road Post Office

27 January 2009

David Stewart, Highlands and Islands Regional MSP, is supporting Merkinch residents who are appealing for the re-opening of the Lochalsh Road Post Office.

Royal Mail is keeping Mr Stewart up to date with their search to find a way to provide a service at the branch, which the locals in their petition refer to as the ‘lifeblood of their area’ and which they say communities and businesses can not do without.

“I have highlighted to the Post Office that this matter needs to be addressed urgently.

“Having spoken with their customer relations team I understand the difficulties they face but there are many elderly and young families in the area who use this Post Office.

“£It is not surprising that the petition has already attracted over 200 names and it is vital that a temporary solution is found until this matter is resolved,” said Mr Stewart.

“I will be visiting Merkinch on Friday to discuss the situation with local residents and businesses.”
