SIR, - I was appalled to learn last Friday that Southdown post office is to close on December 29. This is not a decision by the Post Office but by the Co-op which owns the shop.

However, considering that the Station Road post office in Harpenden has also closed, we are left with the main post office as the only one, except for a small sub-post office in Kinsbourne Green, for the whole of Harpenden. I wonder how they will cope with so many customers, and how customers will manage, especially at Christmas, after this year. The queues are already long and will become unmanageable.

Long Buftlers, Harpenden.
