A community chairman has taken another step forward in his campaign to prevent a post office from being closed.
On Friday last week, Bob Perry, chairman of the Hornchurch and Upminster Conservative Association, met with Laura Tarling, the Post Office’s external affairs manager to discuss the proposed closure of the High Street, Hornchurch, branch.
In January, the company announced it would close 37 flagship crown offices affecting branches in High Street, Hornchurch and Collier Row Road, Collier Row.
At the meeting, Mr Perry was supported by Hornchurch and Upminster MP Julia Dockerill, and Conservative action teams.
“If this branch were to close it would have a serious effect on the local community here in Hornchurch,” he said.
“Julia Dockerill and the teams made it very clear that they are strongly opposed to the closure.”
Mr Perry asked residents to send letters supporting the campaign to Freepost RSCR-JCGC-UEKR Conservative Centre, 23 Butts Green Road, Hornchurch. RM11 2JS.
