A campaign has been launched to save New Cross Gate post office. There's a petition which states the case clearly:
'On the 10th January 2017 the Post Office Limited proposed to close 93 Post Offices. Among those they wish to close is New Cross Gate Post Office located at 199/205 New Cross Road, SE14 5DH.
New Cross gate Post Office provides a vital service to the local community and beyond, and to lose such services will gravely impact those who need this local post office most. Among those will be pensioners and vulnerable people. This is a high demand, busy and heavily utilised Post Office.
New Cross Gate Post Office is located in a central location in New Cross, at a major public bus interchange, where for local savers there is no alternative banking facilities. It is used by a wide demographic of ages for postal services, saving, making payments, currency, passports service, as well as many other key services. In this part of New Cross there is no other banking or saving institutions, which adds to reason why the Post Office at New Cross Gate would be a severe loss.
We the undersigned call on Paula Vennells, Chief Executive of Post Office Limited, to revoke the plans to close the vital New Cross Gate Post Office'.
On Saturday 28th January the campaign will be publicly launched with a demonstration outside the Post Office from 10 am to 11 am.
