May 20, 2008: After month's of uncertainty it's been confirmed today that Hatherleigh Post Office will remain open. However, about 40 other local PO's in Devon are still under threat. We should learn today which ones are facing the axe. A delighted Madeleine Taylor (left) told us how relieved she was that it was all over. "Obviously we feel sad for those Post Offices who are being closed," she said, "but it means the uncertainty has been removed and we can now get on with our lives."
What do you attribute your success to? we asked. "The hard work we've put in over the years to grow this business, and the wide range of services we've introduced," she told us. "But mostly it's due to our customers, who've shown that they appreciate what we provide. It was they who proved we were needed and viable, and we're extremely grateful for their support."
