REFERENCE the proposed closure of Loxton Post Office, it would be interesting to know the name of the staff member who wrote that "there is a limited bus service to Bleadon" because it could get into the Guinness Book of Records as the understatement of the century.The bus to Bleadon runs once a week. It leaves the Christon/Loxton area about 9.30am and returns about 1.30pm. What then, does one do for some four hours at Bleadon Post Office? Elderly and disabled residents of Loxton/Christon are being told that it is 1,100 yards from bus stop to post office. How much more revealing it is when expressed as almost three-quarters of a mile! Each way.The alternative is to be driven some four and three quarters or three and a half miles each way, thereby increasing emissions and pollution. Alice in Wonderland was truly before her time. We are living in it. Cancel the proposed closure of Loxton Post Office.T BURNELL JONES - Christon Road, Loxton
