Poll: Almost 1-in-5 in Forth Valley don’t use Post Office services
Almost one-in-five people in the Forth Valley admit they do not use services at their nearest Post Office, a Central FM News poll has found.
The Twitter survey revealed 18% of respondents said they never used the facilities at their local store, while 44% said they only needed to occasionally.
Just 38% of respondents said they used Post Office services regularly.
The results come as Stirling MSP Bruce Crawford issued a plea for residents in Killin to respond to a consultation on Post Office services in the area.
The store relocated to Dreadnought Place earlier this year.
Mr Crawford said: “Post Offices continue to provide a crucial service to local communities across the country- especially to rural villages.
“I hope that the new location will prove suitable to the local community, but only residents of the area can truly judge that.
“I would therefore encourage local people to get involved by responding to the Post Office’s consultation. Let them know what you think, and tell them where they can maker improvements.”
