Not every Post Office has a view like this
I had to use the Ramsey Post Office today. This is the view outside, the Post Office is just to the left side, out of shot. I had to post something and get a receipt. This is not something I could do online. I had to post something across to England. In the queue were people cashing cheques who do not have bank accounts. People paying utility bills. People collecting their pension. People posting large items, to big for a post box. People doing all sorts of transactions, they cannot do anywhere other than the Post Office. People collecting forms, like driving license applications. Not everyone is online, or has access to the internet at home. Ramsey has no internet cafe. The Post Office is an integral, important, part of Ramsey community. Today I've discovered plans to close the Post Office, and have sub PO's in local shops. This is not acceptable to the people of the town, and as I type a campaign, petition and meeting are taking place and setting up to voice the residents objections ad overturn the proposed closure. The Isle of Man is a small island, and Ramsey is the second largest town after the Capital Douglas. The second town, should have a post office. The people of Ramsey fought and won to keep the local hospital. Now we fight for the post office. Anyone like to sign the petition link here. Not often I have something to shout about on the blog, but even a small town is more than sunsets.
Part of abc. Others around the world ca be seen here.
