Southfields Post Office Update

As many of its local customers and residents may be aware, the Post Office site in Southfields was under threat of having to close temporarily at the end of September. I have been working with the Post Office over the last 18 months to ensure the continuation of provision locally and I arranged an urgent meeting with the Chief Executive of the Post Office, Paula Vennells, earlier in the summer.
The meeting was extremely positive and Ms Vennells reaffirmed her commitment to ensuring service is reinstated as soon as possible. The Post Office has agreed to work closely with and provide additional support to the new Postmaster, once they have been appointed, to ensure the new Post Office is up and running as soon as possible.
I've done an update to Southfields residents, but wanted to assure residents that I am continuing to work hard with the Post Office to ensure that any disruption to our Post Office service in the Southfields and West Hill area is avoided and otherwise kept to an absolute minimum. I will continue to keep residents updated on any further news.
