Having listened to local residents at Lovat Fields Retirement Village in Willen, I acted swiftly when told that there was a desperate need for a new post box.
At my mobile surgery, Cllr Catriona Morris and I heard first-hand how residents in the surrounding area were having to come into the retirement village in order to post their letters. Naturally, this was causing the elderly residents a great deal of concern. Royal Mail responded to our request for an alternative post box and have started the process to install an additional box.
Mobile surgeries are an ideal opportunity for elected representatives like Catriona and I to listen and react to local residents concerns and I'm happy that Royal Mail have acted with such a positive response.
