All over the country at present people seem to be protesting over the loss of their Post Offices. In rural communities I completely understand the importance of a Post Office. Growing up in a small provincial town the Post Office was the heart of our community long before you could buy a panini at a cafe or tweet and use facebook. I remember going there as a child and watching all the clerks running around stamping and franking frantically. Every so often my Father would buy a first day cover for his stamp collection. They were amazing places to visit but things have changed so much that they no longer have a place. I am sure there are people who don't even know what a stamp is let alone understand why you would collect them or even send a letter. It's a shame but also inevitable.
