Post Office closure announcement

9th February 2017

Local MP Iain Duncan Smith has raised concerns about the future of South Woodford postal services. 

He said: “I will be helping campaign to keep the South Woodford Post Office open. I am concerned Post Office managers seem unable to understand just what an asset they have in George Lane. Many people rely on it heavily. It also helps attract people to the area who then go on to spend money in other businesses in the road. Should the franchise partner decide to move elsewhere, South Woodford will be left without those key services.”
