Post offices are an essential part of the local community linking businesses with customers and connecting friends and relatives which is why I take their operation and closure very seriously. I'll be adding information to this campaign site to keep local residents aware that I'm working on their behalf to make sure these essential services are protected.
01 May 2020: I followed up my recent email with a phone call to Royal Mail's External Affairs Manager. He assured they would respond to our concerns about the continued closure of Chorleywood Post Office very soon.
14 May 2020: I received a response to my enquiry. Frustratingly the situation is complicated and involved personal matters which can't be shared with the wider public. I am however fully aware of the situation and will continue to press for the reopening of this valuable community asset.
I am also tracking the proposed temporary unplanned closure of the post offices in Moor Park and Chipperfield due to staffing issues as a result of Coronavirus. Post Office Ltd are currently carrying out consultations which can be accessed here and here.
