RESIDENTS of Drury Lane, Buckley, are no longer ‘second class’ citizens.
They have just given their stamp of approval to the return of their postbox.
Contractors carrying out roadworks near the Horse and Jockey pub accidentally demolished the former box in the summer.
A campaign for a replacement by local county councillors Dennis Hutchinson and Mike Peers and town councillor Jeannie Hutchinson has been a success.
Cllr Dennis Hutchinson said: “When the postbox was damaged beyond repair residents had a long walk to either Lane End or the town centre to post mail.
“I’m delighted our campaign to get a new postbox has been successful, as it serves a large number of residents in the area.”
Cllr Peers said: “I have been in contact with Alan Beattie of Royal Mail in Chester for a number of weeks and I’m grateful it has finally been reinstated.
“The delays were due to the fact Royal Mail could not site it in its original position due to underground services, and engineers then had to survey the area so that no underground services were damaged.”
