Local MSP Comments on Portessie Post Office Closure

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has expressed concern after Post Office Limited confirmed to him that Portessie Post Office will close from 5.30pm on Monday 5 December.

The closure is owing to the resignation of the current Postmaster and is deemed by Post Office Limited to be a “temporary closure”.

Commenting, Stewart said:

“This will be a disappointment to the local community as our local Post Offices still perform a valuable role and very often, as in this case, also help support the local shop.

“I am aware from the local community that there are some expressions of interest in taking over the shop and Post Office and I am offering my encouragement and support to those individuals.

“Clearly, any buyout will be a commercial matter between the owner and prospective purchasers, but in the meantime I am encouraging Post Office Limited to commit to maintaining a service locally, whether that is – hopefully – in the currently location, or elsewhere.”
