Fortwilliam Post Office reopening is great news – Sinn Féin councillor
March 7, 2013Welcoming the news of the reopening of Fortwilliam Post Office today Castle Sinn Féin's councillor Mary Ellen Campbell said:
"This breaking news that Post Office counters are to reopen the Fortwilliam branch is fantastic and in no small part down to the successful lobbying done by this community.
“Since the news of the closure I've been in touch with the Post Office stating the case for this service to be maintained and combined with the closure of the First Trust Bank, loss of the post office service was going to have a double impact.
“I am delighted for the hundreds of local people that depended on this service until recently. Of course it's our job as political representatives to highlight the interests of the community publicly but local people played a significant part in convincing Post Office Counters that we need this resource at Fortwilliam.”
