The article focuses on the decision by the local church in Whitwell, Isle of Wight to host a Post Office service. Over the years, the village had lost two shops, a Methodist church, a forge, playgroup, youth hostel and a nursing home. The vicar - Rev. Sandra Lloyd - was determined that Whitwell had lost too many facilities to allow another one to go and put forward the idea of providing a Post Office in the church. After months of planning, the medieval church of Saint Mary and Saint Rhadegund opened its own post office.
