Post Office campaigns

The Post Office has announced plans to close a number of branches in London.

While there are no planned closures to Hackney Post Offices in the De Beauvoir area, Mayor Jules Pipe and councillors for affected areas in Hackney have launched a campaign to get the Post Office to back down from its bid to close branches.

As local councillors we have also joined Islington Labour MP, Emily Thornberry's campaign to overturn the plan to close the Essex Road Post Office in Islington.

Unfortunatrly Islington's Lib Dem run council dealt the first blow to the Essex Road Post Office by selling the building.
