The fight to save a Fraserburgh Post Office has been taken to the Council Chamber by local councillor Brian Topping.

Speaking at the recent meeting of the full Aberdeenshire Council, the Broch councillor condemned proposals to close Broadsea Post Office.

Cllr Brian Topping (SNP-Fraserburgh & District) commented:

"Broadsea Post Office serves a very large population and is well used by the public who appreciate the service the staff there provide.

"I think it is a very short-sighted move on the part of the London Government to force this closure programme on the Post Office and tear the heart out of our local communities in this way."

"Post Offices in the Broch went through a period of uncertainty a few years ago when the Government was looking to reduce the number of "urban" Post Offices at that time. All three branches survived and I was hopeful that the same outcome could be achieved this time. It is extremely unfair on the subpostmasters and staff to have this continual uncertainty.

"I know that many local people have made their views known as part of the consultation process and I hope that the powers that be pay attention to the strength of feeling in Fraserburgh on this."
