Chilling Out in the Post Office-or rather outside it
Huttonian understands that the main motivation in asking the Post Office to park its mobile thingee in the most exposed part of the village and not outside the Village Hall as at present was an 'understandable feeling' on part of the Hall Committee that the Post Office Highheidyins having done the village a bad turn in closing the post office can now expect no cooperation from the community
Making the point.
And now who will suffer from this fine gesture of civic minded cussedness.
Not the mobile Post Office person snug in her cab; not the Highheidyins in distant wherever who would dearly like an excuse for abandoning the service as being 'not wanted by the local stakeholders'
It is I fear the dwindling band of pensioners who are apparently still prepared to put up with some small local difficulties to get their money cash in hand as they have always done rather than flog into Berwick. If the Hall Committee really want to inconvenience them further (and Knowe's Close on a chilly November day with no relief facilities and no shelter is as inconvenient as it can get) then they are going about it the right way.
So why not open the Hall while the van is outside for just over two hours a week?
Official pretext : Have to pay too much extra insurance.
Might a whip round cover it? Good use if money from a Coffee morning
Huttonian is prepared to contribute
Positive Thinking seems called for.
