Following a request from Westover ward councillor Brian Smedley that Post Office Limited's key decision maker Tony Jones face the public to answer questions about the decision to relocate the town's post office in Sainsbury's, a meeting has been set up by the Town Council and this will be held at Trinity Hall on Wednesday 29th August.

Cllr Smedley
 (left) said "The consultation period will run until September 5th and was kicked off this week with a 100% opposition to the proposal by the Sedgemoor Community Scrutiny Committee. The decision to act on the final results of the consultation will actually be down to Tony Jones alone after he's sifted through the evidence. Accordingly it is crucial that he be available to face the public who will have to live with the consequences."

A statement from Alan Hurford, Town Clerk reads " In consultation with the Mayor arrangements have been made for a special Town Council meeting which will be open to the public (and conducted under SOs) with representative(s) of the Post Office in attendance.  (Along the same lines as the 'TESCO' meeting). The Meeting will be held on Wednesday 29 August at TRINITY HALL  commencing at 7.30pm.   This will be formally advertised in the usual way and include a press notice.   The AGENDA will be issued in due course. This will give all interested a further opportunity to voice their opinions within the consultation period which ends on 05 September.   In the meantime all should be encouraged to submit views directly to the PO on the proposed re-location to Sainsburys."
