Edward Davey MP campaigning with local residents to keep our post offices
From Edward Davey, MP for Kingston and Surbiton


Five Post Offices to close

Labour’s decision to close 2,500 post offices across Britain has arrived in Kingston. They propose to close FIVE post offices locally. We have till the end of March to stop them.

Every post office user in Kingston will be hit by these appalling closures. Even if your usual office is staying open, the chances are queues will be longer. Yet at places like Surbiton’s main post office, the queues are already too long.

However, it is elderly people, the ill and disabled and young mothers with small children at the closing offices who will be hit the worst. Not to mention communities and shopping parades served by those post offices.

Our campaign

So we must campaign to stop the closures.

The post offices to be closed (“depending on consultation”) are:

  • Burlington Road, New Malden

  • Hook Rise, Chessington

  • Norbiton Common, Norbiton

  • Plough Green, Old Malden

  • Surbiton Road, Kingston
A sixth post office in the Borough is also listed for closure. It's in Richmond Road, and you should contact Susan Kramer MP with your views about this one.

Can we win?

Well, it is true that few such campaigns anywhere in the country have been successful. With the Government forcing this closure plan through, despite our opposition in Parliament, it won’t be easy.

Yet on Tolworth Broadway, I convinced Post Office Limited to continue looking for a manager to re-open that post office which closed due to its previous operator pulled out.

Moreover, the trick will be to find that unique reason why an office should remain.

I need your help

Especially if you use one of the closing post offices. Together we need to build the special case – whether it’s the particular impact on your community, the difficulty of accessing the nearest alternatives or the social effects.
