Belmont Post Office closure - public meeting at 7pm, Wednesday, CIYMS

It was no April Fool when I posted on 1 April about the Post Office’s planned closure of the Campbell Park “Belmont” branch (situated on Belmont Church Road). There’s an open consultation on all the Northern Ireland proposed closures. You can write in with comments until 12 May.

Notice on lamp post advertising public meeting about proposed closure of Belmont Post Office

In the meantime, Wandsworth Community Centre has organised and publicised a public meeting of local residents and businesses in CIYMS (on Circular Road) this Wednesday at 7pm.

Local councillors as well as members of the local Postwatch committee (the postal watchdog – they’ve got a blog!) will be there to listen to local responses.

I'd have considered going to the meeting at CI; I've another meeting at seven-thirty that evening.

Presumably there need to be be fairly cogent arguments to keep the Branch open - these folk at the PO will be hard to convince otherwise. They realize that nobody wishes it to close.

I hope it goes well and a strong message is sent out to those in Authority.
