There was sad news today as Rachel learnt that Hawksworth Wood Post Office is confirmed to move from Broadway to Lea Farm Road.
After a long campaign against the move that involved consulting with local residents, organising public meetings and talks with senior management, the Post Office have decided to close the Broadway site, a fixture on the street for many years, and move it to Lea Farm Road.
On learning of the Post Office's decision, Rachel said:
“I am very disappointed that the Post Office are closing a branch that has been there for over 60 years on Broadway.
“The overwhelming majority of the local people do not support the move of their Post Office branch and have worked hard to keep it in the same location.
"I will now work hard with the Post Office to ensure that the new post office is as accessible as possible for people including those who do not have access to transport, the disabled, and the elderly community on the estate and to ensure that people feel safe when visiting the new Post Office branch.”
