National Post Office Week - Ruffley to address Countryside Alliance rally at Combs Ford Post Office

Monday, 19 February, 2007

David Ruffley MP will be visiting Combs Ford Post Office on Friday 23 February at 2.45pm to mark National Post Office week.

The Countryside Alliance will be holding a rally outside the Post Office in support of David's visit and the national campaign to keep our rural post offices open.

David will address the crowd and then meet with Combs Ford Post Office owner Deepak Suchak.

The local media are invited to attend and David will be available for interview and photographs.

David said:

'Local Post Offices are the lifeblood of rural communities.

'I am delighted that the Countryside Alliance will be joining me at Combs Ford Post Office to mark National Post Office Week.

'It is of the utmost importance that we keep Post Offices such as Combs Ford open for years to come. Research from the Countryside Alliance tells us that 91 percent of people feel that their local Post Office plays an important role in their community.

'I have had the pleasure of knowing Dee Suchak for a number of years and I look forward to meeting with him and discussing what we can do to secure the future of Suffolk's rural Post Offices.'
