Demonstrators have gathered in St Leonards to protest against the possible closure of the Crown Post Office.
The Post Office revealed plans in July to replace or relocate directly-run Crown branches in 20 locations as part of a modernisation programme.
But locals have described their post office as the 'beating heart' of the community.
It had been feared that thirty-three town centre post office branches across the region would be closed today and tomorrow.
The threat came in a dispute over job losses and pensions. However, all branches in our region managed to open, much to the relief of these people in Basingstoke.
