SIR, - Am I right in thinking that the Harpenden Station Road North post office is the only one in the Batford area? If so, its closure must be resisted at all costs. People living in the Batford area cannot be told to go to the main Harpenden office. It must be retained or replaced.

I don't live in the affected area, but I have a personal interest in opposing the closure. When I need a post office, I usually drive across Harpenden to the Station Road North office or to Kinsbourne Green to avoid the queues and waiting at the main Harpenden office. I am not alone.

Mr Willsohn (Herts Advertiser, July 10) says that this proposed closure is long overdue. He is wrong, I am delighted to hear of the Liberal Democrat support for the campaign against closure, which so annoys Mr Willsohn, and I wish them, and everyone else involved, success. By the way I am a member of the Conservative Party.

JOHN STEVENSON,

Old Rectory Close, Harpenden.
