Stockwell Post Office could be closed if plans from Post Office bosses are approved.
A consultation has just begun which proposes “merging” our post office with the branch on Ferndale Road in Brixton.
It would mean local residents being forced to travel all the way down Stockwell Road to Brixton – a round trip that could take up to 40 minutes on foot. For many elderly or disabled people, used to relying on a local service for their savings, stamps or bill payments, that could put the service out of reach. Anyone who uses Stockwell will know queues are common and that’s only likely to get worse if Ferndale Road has to cope with extra customers.
Your Stockwell Labour Action Team - Cllr Alex Bigham, Cllr Imogen Walker and Guilherme Rosa - completely oppose these plans and we have started a campaign to get the Post Office to change its mind.

We the undersigned oppose the plans to close the Stockwell Post Office (opposite Stockwell tube station) and call on the Post Office to rethink its plans.
