As many local customers may be aware, the Post Office in Southfields may have 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 earlier this week I arranged an urgent meeting with the Chief Executive of the Post Office, Paula Vennells.
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 just wanted to ensure 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 kept to an absolute minimum. I will continue to keep residents updated on any further news.
