The Post Office recently announced the plan to ‘franchise’ 74 Crown Post Offices. Conservative estimates suggest that some 800 jobs will be affected by this move – this equates to almost one-third of the whole Crown network. And there are serious questions about the potentially reduced range of services to be provided after the changes.
Crawley Labour party members were talking to Ifield residents yesterday asking them to sign a petition calling on the Post Office to keep Crawley’s Post Office open where it is now. Most people were willing to sign up to this.
