Commenting on the news that Post Office Ltd have chosen to move the local branch from Springfield Road to Wishart Drive, Labour’s Stirling East Candidate and Local Community Leader Chris Kane says,
“I’m deeply disappointed by Post Office Ltd’s disregard for the views of the community and their customers. There have been petitions over this move organised by local residents. I’ve written with my concerns and the concerns of the dozens of people who have raised this issue with me in recent months. Post Office Ltd have made it just that little bit harder for elderly and those with mobility problems to access local services and that isn’t right. While I wish the new operators at Broomridge Mini-Market every success with this venture, this isn’t the location for Post Office services that local residents wanted.”
The move will take place in the coming months once preparatory work has been undertaken at the new site.
Labour will always stand up for our communities and fight on your behalf. We need local people with local knowledge and a track record of success as our local councillors. Chris Kane is already a successful Community Leader – he’s been Chair of Braehead Community Council for 6 years. He’s set up a charity, Braehead & Broomridge Community Development Trust, to deliver new services and opportunities in his community. He’s raised over £250,000 and built Braehead Community Garden.
Corrie McChord has been serving his community as a Stirling Councillor for over thirty years. A Trade Unionist, Board member of Forth Valley NHS Trust and former Board member of SEPA, Corrie has been Stirling Council Leader seven times over the years.
