Campaigning for the reopening of Hornsey Sorting Office alongside local Labour Councillors
Campaigning for the reopening of Hornsey Sorting Office alongside local Labour Councillors

Many residents will remember the serious problems with the postal service locally last winter.  It was particularly bad in the N8 and N4 areas and it was something I repeatedly raised at the time, both with Royal Mail and in Parliament where I renewed calls to bring back Hornsey Sorting Office.

I’m grateful to our Postal Workers, who’ve been on the frontline throughout the pandemic delivering more mail with fewer people.  But I am concerned that our area saw services hit harder than almost anywhere else in the country last year, and with Royal Mail reporting record profits it’s vital that bosses step up and put a plan in place to stop this happening again.

That’s why earlier this month I wrote to Royal Mail bosses to ask what pro-active plans they were putting in place, including temporary staffing to cover sick leave and increased mail volumes, to avoid problems as Christmas approaches.

These are the responses that I have received to date.  However, I’ve now requested a meeting with Royal Mail bosses to obtain some more concrete information about their plans for the Christmas season and to discuss further recent reports of problems in the N10 area at the Muswell Hill Sorting Office.

I’ll continue to post updates on my website and do get in touch if this issue is affecting you.  You can also contact Royal Mail directly here.
