Minster FM announcement

Minster FM announcement

I am saddened by the announcement that Minster FM is to be absorbed into ‘Greatest Hits Radio North Yorkshire’ after acquisition by Bauer Media, and fear this means the loss of a distinctive local institution. I have always enjoyed my appearances on Minster, and believe it has made a valuable contribution to the cultural life

Julian seeks meeting with Post Office to discuss temporary closure of Woodthorpe branch

May 16, 2019

Julian has today contacted the Post Office to request a full update and meeting on when they will reinstate their Woodthorpe branch, following the news this will close temporarily.

The Post Office have said the Moorcroft Road branch will close temporarily “following the withdrawal of these premises for Post Office use”. They have announced they are looking at options that will allow the service to be reopened.

Following the news, Julian said: “This closure of this important local service will be of concern to local residents, especially given how sudden this announcement was.

I have requested the Post Office meet with me to explain the situation, and clarify what steps they are taking to ensure a normal Post Office service is reinstated for Woodthorpe as soon as possible.

I would encourage any residents who have concerns about this to get in touch with me, so I can ensure the Post Office understand local feeling on the matter.”
