SORTING OFFICE CLOSURE PROTEST SATURDAY 2.30pm
From Norwood Action Group: Helen Hayes, MP for Dulwich and West Norwood, asks for your help to save our Sorting Office from closure – this would affect and severely inconvenience almost every person in West Norwood.
“We are grateful to the hundreds of local residents who have signed our petition and those who attended our protest earlier this year. I have tabled a motion in Parliament opposing delivery office closures and calling on the government to take action to stop them.
“We understand that Royal Mail has not yet taken a final decision on the closure, but that they plan to do so in the next few weeks. “We need your help to put further pressure on Royal Mail and to make sure that they understand how unacceptable their plan is for local residents.
“That is why I am writing to ask you to show your support for our campaign by attending a protest against the changes this Saturday 9th September, 2.30pm at the Windsor Grove delivery office.
“This is a vital opportunity to demonstrate exactly how strongly local people feel about this issue. Make a banner, bring your friends along and help keep the delivery office open. I hope to see you there.
“You can also help keep up the pressure by writing to the Chief Executive of Royal Mail, Moya Greene, at Royal Mail Group, 100 Victoria Embankment, London EC4Y 0HQ or [email protected] .
“Tell Moya Greene exactly what impact the closure of your local delivery office would have on you and your family. Please copy me in on your letter or email.” Helen’s email is: [email protected]
