Waterloo Road Post Office under threat

Waterloo Road Post Office is to close at Easter. Falling customer numbers and "further customer losses" once pensions are paid direct to bank accounts is the reason being given by the Post Office's head of area Kevin Ray.

Users are to be directed to Blackfriars Road and Westminster Bridge Road branches, but staff at King's College London's Stamford Street buildings say that those offices are difficult to reach during the lunch hour, and as they are only open 9am-5.30pm a visit after work is not a convenient option either.

Among those protesting are Lambeth Council Leader Peter Truesdale and Vauxhall MP Kate Hoey.

Nationwide 28 million people visit a Post Office branch every week.

Complaints can be sent to Kevin Ray, Head of Area Post Office Ltd, c/o National Consultation Team, PO Box 641, St Albans AL1 5XN to be received by 7 February.
