Following the recent action Chris Elmore MP, Bridgend County Borough Council, local Welsh Labour councillors and I have been taking to temporarily relocate Post Office services in Maesteg.
Chris Elmore and I have written to Post Office Ltd to underline the importance of maintaining local services.
Access to financial and postal services in Maesteg is of critical importance to local businesses and residents, not least because of the retreat of banks from our high streets in recent years.
We will be continuing to work closely with the Post Office and local Maesteg Town and County Borough Councillors to ensure that a resolution is found to this important issue.
