Saturday 26th February saw the “Gilets Rouge” once again join forces with members of the C.W.U. to fight the “privatisation” of all our Crown Post Offices. The people of Kendal are rightly angered that the Kendal branch is proposed to be moved into W.H. Smith’s. The official plans were on show at last week’s “Consultation” at the Town Hall but have not been published outside of a very controlled environment. There is a reason for this: whoever has drawn up the plans has not done due diligence regarding the lay out of the store and where queues form at the shop tills, thus most of the exits will become dangerously blocked, especially for anyone with a disability or pushing a buggy. It really is a mess. Join us again on Saturday 23rd February at the Kendal Birdcage to find out more about why these plans must be resisted.
