The Crown Post Offices in Crouch End and Muswell Hill are under threat of being downgraded to a franchise model, which would see them moved into shops with smaller space and fewer counters, leading to longer queues and a loss of experienced staff.
Local residents are fighting to keep their Crown Post Offices and the next event being organised is a protest outside both post offices on Saturday 7 May. It promises to be an enjoyable occasion with singing, balloons and even the promise of some specially designed muffins baked by Dunns.
Crouch Enders will be queueing from 10.30 and Muswell Hillers at 11.30. Please come and join us, the longer the queue, the better.
Catherine West MP said: "I’m extremely concerned about what these plans will means for the customers who rely on these branches, for service standards, accessibility and for employees in the branches – as well as the wider effects on the local high street if these well-used buildings are lost. Hundreds of local people have already contacted me in support of the campaign to save our Post Offices and I look forward to seeing lots of you on Saturday. I will continue to oppose these unpopular plans"
