Keep Barrow Upon Soar Post Office
There are many rumours about the fate of the Barrow Upon Soar post office following the recent audit and closure "for the foreseeable future". We have started this petition to gain support to keep a post office in Barrow as we believe all villages, especially one of this size, should have a post office.
The post office is currently always busy serving many of the community, whether that be through parcels, pensions or other services. To lose this would be a great loss especially to people who can't travel further afield.
With new houses being built the need for this will be greater and to travel to Loughborough to collect undelivered parcels is too far.
While we currently don't know the outcome of the audit and if it is actually closing we want to present this petition as a means to make sure closure doesn't happen. While this may not be in the same building we do need a post office for the village.
