It has been announced that the newsagent Martin’s, which also has a post office inside, will be closing in October.
Cllr Debbie Davies has been in contact with the Post Office and has arranged a meeting with their External Affairs Manager this week to try and find a solution. Cllr Davies has also spoken to two local people who are potentially interested in taking over the business and is working with Bradford Council to ensure the post office remains open.
Cllr Davies said “I have heard from local businesses who are very concerned about this development, particularly its effect on the village. I am working with the various stakeholders to ensure this vital local service remains open and will continue to fight for local businesses and residents.”
