Local people at the protest in April
To support the local campaign to keep the Royal Mail sorting office & parcel pick up point for SE27 in SE27 please join Helen Hayes at a protest this Saturday 9th September – at 2.30pm outside 4 Windsor Grove SE27 9LS.
This is our last chance, following on our petition and protest in April, to tell Royal Mail we want to keep the SE27 sorting office local and in SE27! Royal Mail are due to make a final decision this month on whether to move the SE27 sorting office to Blenheim Road SE20 8AA 19 near Penge.
