Sec­ond counter brings boost to Cri­eff ser­vice

Strathearn Herald - - STRATHEARN VIEW -

Ab­dul Qadir, pro­pri­etor of Cri­eff’s King Street Post Of­fice branch, wel­comed lo­cal MP Luke Gra­ham to his shop last Fri­day.

Mr Qadir is cur­rently the only provider of a post of­fice ser­vice in the Strath cap­i­tal and the par­lia­men­tar­ian was there to see the suc­cess­ful in­stal­la­tion of a sec­ond post of­fice counter.

Mr Gra­ham has worked closely with Mr Qadir and the Post Of­fice to im­prove the ser­vice pro­vi­sions at Mr Qadir’s lo­cal gro­cery store.

The Ochil and South Perthshire MP said:“I am de­lighted to be able to as­sist in this process.

“This is a timely in­ter­ven­tion by Mr Qadir and the Post Of­fice, which will help bring more ser­vices and bet­ter ac­cess for lo­cal res­i­dents of Cri­eff.

“The ef­fi­ciency of the ser­vice pro­vi­sion has seen an im­me­di­ate im­prove­ment for the lo­cal res­i­dents who use the fa­cil­ity.”

Mr Qadir added:“I would like to thank Luke Gra­ham MP for his help in se­cur­ing a sec­ond post of­fice counter. It was greatly needed as the shop was be­ing af­fected by the in­crease in cus­tomer traf­fic for the post of­fice.”

Mr Gra­ham is keen to urge the Post Of­fice to do more to sup­port the wider Cri­eff com­mu­nity in the pro­vi­sion of postal ser­vices.

He added:“While the in­stal­la­tion of the sec­ond counter in Mr Qadir’s shop is welcome, it can only be a tem­po­rary mea­sure.

“The Post Of­fice needs to pro­vide a larger, long-term op­tion for Cri­eff, which is more fit­ting for a town of its size.”
