Cllr Fearn with Kelly Tolhurst MP at St Andrew’s Park
Cllr Matt Fearn wants to hear your views on the possibility of installing a post box in St Andrews Park.
With the development of St Andrews Park, no provision has been made for the installation of a Royal Mail post box. After consulting with local residents I believe that you should have the final say on what you want.
If you would like a post box installed then I will campaign on your behalf to achieve that. I am here to help and support you and will do all I can to achieve that.
