The present post office is a Ions; way from being oantral and at pretent only a very few ate It; not many litters go through tho Sprlngburn big bat are ourled on to Mount Somers by the mailman, and to show that the change is badly wanted «ome of the residents have erected private boxes on the line of main road.
