After campaigning hard with the local community, CWU Union and conservative Councillors Michael Duffell and Sue Nolan to protect postal services in South Woodford, we managed to gain two very important commitments from the Post Office.
- The Post Office will be actively searching for a franchise partner in George Lane once existing premises closes.
- While arrangements for a new store take place a temporary post office will be opened in one of the existing vacant business outlets on George Lane.
I am very pleased to confirm the temporary Post Office in South Woodford will be opening on the 15th April, located at Unit 1 Galleria 180 -182 George Lane, South Woodford, London E18 1AY, ahead of the current branch closure planned for 28 April, allowing customers to use both branches for two weeks.
This is a great result and I’d like to thank everyone involved in working hard and supporting this important campaign to protect our local postal services and I'm grateful to the Post Office for sticking to their commitments.
