Campaign over ‘overflowing’ postbox

THREE councillors have written to the Royal Mail to demand action over an overflowing postbox.

Cllrs Chris Corbett, Geoff Smith and Kewal Athwal, of Wilsthorpe ward in Long Eaton, say the post box in the Dales estate is too small to cope with the volume of mail.

Leader of the council Cllr Corbett wants to see a bigger postbox or more frequent emptying undertaken.

He said “We are concerned that residents’ privacy may be compromised. However we are not too hopeful.

“But with Christmas not too far away a speedy resolution to this problem is essential.”
