Save Goathland Post Office.


We've learnt that Goathland Post Office is one of the 2,500 under threat of closure by the Government. The village has swung into action to try to keep it open. It's been a flurry of activity writing letters, drafting leaflets, painting banners and making placards! This morning we closed the office for an hour so the staff could all take part in a rally of support outside the Post Office. This was photographed by our local paper the Whitby Gazette, filmed by Tyne Tees television for the local news bulletin and interviews (with the boss and some staff!) were recorded by BBC Radio York.
