Simon Hughes meets with members of the London SE1 Forum

On 1 December 2003 Harry started a thread in the London SE1 Forum complaining about the poor quality of the Royal Mail postal delivery service in the SE1 area. "Anyone else having this trouble?" asked Harry. The tales of missing parcels and delayed post flooded in.

Now members of the London SE1 Forum are mounting a campaign to get Royal Mail to take action to rectify the problems experienced by local residents and businesses.

They have already met Simon Hughes MP at a specially arranged public meeting and he is also pursuing the matter.
