Save Murray Grove Post Office

Following the announcment from the Post Office announced of the proposed closure of the Murray Grove Post Office as part of its London Area Plan, ward Councillors have started an online petition. We will continue to fight vigorously against the closure and we believe that six weeks isn't long enough to have a meaningful dialogue with the community about these changes.

The alternative post offices in Old Street and on Hoxton High Street are too far away for many elderly and vulnerable residents who value having this community resource on their door step. Post offices also play an important part in local social and economic life. In Hoxton where the levels of deprivation and poor access to financial services can be particularly high we need them more than most.

If you would like to support our campaign to keep the post office open, please sign our online petition by clicking here.
