WHAT you’ve been say­ing on our Face­book page:

LI­BRARY move for clos­ing Oswaldtwistle Post Of­fice branch ruled out (De­cem­ber 21):

Gayle Knight: I did speak to the Post Of­fice to see if we could of­fer tem­po­rary space but the amount of work that would be needed to make a space vi­able couldn’t just be on a tem­po­rary ar­range­ment. But they did say they have had at least three of­fers of space. Oswaldtwistle will not be left without one. Ju­dith Ad­di­son: We used to have two Post Of­fices in “main­stream Ossy” - one at the bot­tom end al­most op­po­site the Civic and one at the top end, just above the junc­tion with Com­mer­cial Street. Of course that was in the days when old peo­ple used to draw their state pen­sion in cash ev­ery week, which was also a “so­cial oc­ca­sion” for them, see­ing the same peo­ple in the queue ev­ery time. It al­ways used to amuse me how they started queue­ing about quar­ter of an hour be­fore the Post Of­fices opened at 9am, as though they were afraid the money was go­ing to run out if they weren’t there at the start! As far as I know no-one has ex­pressed in­ter­est in tak­ing over the McColls’ store but I un­der­stand that a num­ber of lo­cal busi­nesses at the top end of Union Road have ex­pressed in­ter­est in host­ing the Post Of­fice. Let’s hope some­thing is sorted out very soon! ‘PRICE­LESS’ 12 days of Christ­mas shop video is a smash hit (De­cem­ber 21): Sharon Tedesco: Great, love it! Es­pe­cially “5 stuff­ing balls”. Lisa Pot­ter: Ha­haha, well funny x Chris­tine Mullen: Ab­so­lutely bril­liant, well done. Ca­role Fit­tock: 2 packs of ba­con my favourite. Re­becca Burns: Love this. Louise Sc­holes: Loved it.
