Royal Mail to leave Maidstone

So the rumours were right about the sorting office in Maidstone. It looks likely that four sorting offices across West Kent will close and we are set to lose our here in Maidstone. 400 jobs to be shed, adding to the horrendously high numbers of unemployed people in Kent. Adding to the misery of families that suffer at the hands of the cuts.

This is the comment from the CWU:
Well the Royal Mail have already said that 10% of the workforce will be lost and how will the elderly and those without cars collect parcels from Medway? I hope the CWU opposes this - I know where I stand!
