The McColls Newsagent,with its post office in Reynolds Way, closed a month or so back. There are currently no plans for an alternative Post Office in that part of town, and a lot of people are suffering as a result.
Last Saturday I went into the nearest post office, in the Co-op in the town centre, and saw the biggest queue I had ever seen there. It had filled the airport style queueing barriers and extended back almost to the Co-op counter.
The chip shop in Reynolds Way has also closed but I am told that it is closed only for refurbishment.
