SIR, - I regret the pending closure of Station Road North post office branch in Harpenden. It's exactly what a village post office should be. Combined with its useful shop, a trip to Sheilah's is a pleasant experience.

I shall continue to use Sheilah's shop but my post office requirements will be met at Southdown where also one finds a supermarket, hardware shop, pharmacy, butchers, bike shop and many more, all within easy walking distance of free parking.

PAUL FINCH,

Pickford Hill, Harpenden.
