Brentford is currently without a Post Office following the closure of the one on the South side of the High Street to clear land for the Ballymore project. The nearest Post Office branches are now miles away in Hanwell and Isleworth. While a couple of High Street traders are seeking to house a Post Office there is scepticism as to the whether the Post Office management will approve either of them. Brentford Voice is therefore starting a petition to demonstrate local backing, with lists for signature in local cafés, shops and pubs. This Saturday 1st February there will be a manned table close to the entrance of Morrisons where you can record your support and on Sunday morning (weather permitting) a table in the Market Place.
“Our High Street Post Office was closed 12 months ago to clear land for a major redevelopment of the Town Centre. Brentford is a diverse community undergoing rapid growth and change; it is vital key services for this community are maintained. We request restoration of a Post office as a matter of urgency.”
The more signatures there are, the stronger the case!
