Save Semilong Post Office in Northampton

Semilong Post Office, Northampton

Sarah Uldall, Lib Dem County Councillor for the St George Division in Northamptonshire, has started a campaign to save Semilong Post Office from closure after news emerged that the current subpostmistress is retiring and a new owner is needed for the Post Office to stay open.

"The Semilong Road Post Office has been in existence for 50 years. Not only does it provide essential services, it is also a local landmark and a meeting place. It will be sorely missed." said Sarah.

Puzzled reader: I am sure this is an admirable campaign, but why are you blogging about it?

Liberal England replies: Because I am almost certainly the only Lib Dem blogger with a photo of Semilong Post Office in his files.
