Residents concerned about plans to close a high street post office are invited to have their say at a special event next week.

The Post Office is holding an afternoon drop-in session at North Romford Community Centre in Clockhouse Lane from 3.15pm–6.45pm on Tuesday, September 19, with residents encouraged to pop in and speak to representatives about the planned move.

It is proposing to close its current branch in Collier Row Road, Collier Row, and open a franchise in the nearby Pound‘n’Max store 30m up the road.

In order to accommodate this proposed move, which would take place in November, the current Pound‘n’Max store would undergo extensive renovations.

The post office would be in a dedicated area with four counters.

New automatic entrance doors would also be installed alongside widened aisles, low level counters, PIN pads, hearing loops and customer seating to ensure the premises was accessible to all.

A six-week public consultation on the plans ends on 20 September.

Customers can also have their say on the proposals by visiting www.postofficeviews.co.uk or by calling 03457 223344.
