MP appalled at loss of Post Offices across SW15 area
amid fears of further closures
Justine Greening MP campaigned with other residents to save post offices in Tildesley Road, Revelstoke Road and Montfort Place which were all eventually shut in spite of residents’ opposition. She has condemned the Government’s proposals for a further wave of reduction in local post offices, vowing to fight on behalf of residents against any future proposed closures.
If the rate of closures seen in this first wave is repeated in the Governments proposals for a second wave of post office closures, then that would mean Putney, Roehampton and Southfields left with just 5 or 6 post offices serving a population of some 85,000 people – a totally inadequate level of service.
I am contacting the Managing Director of the Post Office to seek urgent confirmation that Putney, Roehampton and Southfields will not see any further closures. Residents who want to be kept informed about the next wave of post office closures so they can have their say should get in touch with me by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.”
