Save New Cross Gate Post Office picket on Saturday

The Post Office's Valentine's gift to New Cross is its plan to close the Post Office at 199 New Cross Road on 14 February 2018. Some Post Office services will be available instead as franchise at the back of local convenience store One Stop, but the loss of a busy dedicated Post Office has been widely criticised locally and there must be fears that the adjacent sorting office is also under threat. There are no plans for a free cashpoint/ATM at One Stop, unlike at the current Post Office, and with the Barclays Bank next door with its cashpoint also closed down,  this is another loss of a local amenity.

The  Defend New Cross Gate Crown Post Office campaign has called for a last ditch picket of the Post Office this Saturday 20 January from  9:30 AM - 11:30 AM .

We're holding a Funeral for New Cross Gate Post Office this Saturday 10 Feb from 11.30 -1pm. Come on down. You can wear black/mourning clothes if you want to get into the vibe.
There will be eulogies! We're having the occasion to send her off in style but also raise awareness about this attack on our community - and the fact that nine more Crown PO's are due to close across London on similarly spurious reasons. Meanwhile Post Office CEO Paula Vennells earns more than the Prime Minister - 600K a year.
