DUP pair welcomes 
u-turn on decision not to replace post-box

There was a welcome this week for news that a post-box stolen from Dromore’s Lurgan Road/Blackskull Road junction is to be replaced.

The news follows an earlier decision to dispense with the box.

The Postal Review Panel reversed the earlier decision “given the lack of suitable alternative facilities”.

On his own and Lagan Valley MLA Brenda Hale’s behalf Alderman Paul Rankin said: “We welcome this news .

“Brenda had requested a previous decision not to replace this stolen post box be reviewed.

“. . .This Post box is a necessary service for the local rural community.”
