Sadly we missed the protest meeting in Hutton on Monday last about the threatened closure of the Hutton Post Office and its replacement with a twice weekly mobile post office also serving some other settlements in Berwickshire. Huttonian is told that the meeting was lively and included interventions from the Laird in a rare public appearance. My informant believes that the strength of local feeling may persuade the Post Office to change its mind-and their representatives at the meeting claimed that this was a consultative exercise and 'no decisions had been taken' Certainly on cost basis Hutton remains very competitive despite its small customer base(Compared, say, with SW1)
'Are You waiting for Godot?'
the small lady with the large dog.
'No He has been and gone'
the natty gent in the beer stained trench coat
'Its the post office I am
' Its too late for Monday and a bit early
Said the large dog;
'Oh I'll go and put my teeth in then'
'Nothing like putting your teeth in
for killing time. As it is only just
I'll do it really
