The Crown South Woodford Post Office, which has survived previous attempts of closure, is set to close in the spring.
The loss of this Post Office will be a huge blow to the local community during a difficult time for the High Street, and will leave Woodford without an essential part of the local economy and a vital hub to South Woodford, particularly for the elderly and infirm. There are no arrangements for any kind of replacement.
I'm calling upon the Post Office to reverse this decision and to make a commitment to retaining this key service for South Woodford, served by a proper postal service. Before going any further with these plans Woodford residents have a right to be fully consulted with a full explanation as to how this service will be retained in this shopping area.
