The Post Office has announced the closure of the Crown South Woodford Post Office on George Lane, scheduled for April of this year (2021). This announcement will leave Woodford without this heavily used Post Office and no arrangements for any kind of replacement.
The loss of the Post Office will be a huge blow to South Woodford’s main shopping district at what is a difficult time for the High Street. We are opposed to anything that would endanger long term postal service provision in South Woodford and staff losing their jobs.
Therefore we call upon the Post Office to reverse this decision and to make a commitment to retaining this key service for South Woodford. Residents all want a flourishing local shopping district 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.
