It has just been announced that Deepcar Post Office has been listed as one of the South Yorkshire branches down for closure. This proposed closure forms part of a Labour programme of some 2,500 new closures across the country.

Labour holds the record for closing Post Offices faster than any other government, almost 10 a week since 1997.

Spencer Pitfield, Conservative Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Penistone & Stocksbridge says:

"By the time of the next election Gordon Brown will have closed down a third of the entire Post Office network. Countless communities will lose their only shop and millions of vulnerable people will lose a service they depend upon. Ministers have taken no account of the needs of the elderly, of disabled people, or of the most disadvantaged - the very ones who will miss out most."

Spencer added: "Local Conservatives will fight to save Deepcar Post Office. Please sign our petition."

We, the undersigned, wish to keep Deepcar Post Office open. It is a vital part of our community and we call on Gordon Brown to abandon the latest closures.
