Why the move ?

First published in Letters

I TOTALLY agree with S Symonds concerning moving the post office into the In Shops. It was ideally suited where it was originally. What’s going to happen to that building now? I’m not disputing that a post office was needed at the top of town but wasn’t it possible to keep the original post office and just open a new smaller one?

I would like to know what was the reason for the move, and are there any plans for the old building, or will it lie empty for years and fall into disrepair?

E M Price, Rogerstone

For the generations who were brought up with the In Shops, they will always be. Same as Gilligans Island, Barnardtown and Forge Lane. Gone but not forgotten.

You are remembering it wrong! The In Shops was only ever the downstairs bazaar area, not the entire building.
