MALCOLM Moss MP made a return visit to one of four Post Offices in Fenland threatened with closure, as the final date to lodge objections edges closer.

The NE Cambs MP visited the Harecroft Road Post Office in Wisbech on Friday, and was handed a collection of residents' objections to the proposed closure from store manager, Nisha Maiya.

Mr Moss made his first visit to the store last month, days after the shortlist for closures in Cambridgeshire was announced by Post Office Ltd.

Wisbech councillor Simon King and customers also visited the store, as did a representative from Post Office Ltd to see the store's campaign for herself.

Staff at the Harecroft Road Post Office - along with the Post Offices in St Peter's Road in March, Christchurch and Benwick - will find out if they have won their battle to remain open at the end of this month.
