The Evening Echo recently reported that Rochford Delivery Office may close as the Post Office looks to save money by centralising operations at Short Street. There is the potential jobs to be lost and the inconvenience caused by having to travel into Southend to pick up missed deliveries. Whilst this isn't a "definite" yet, it does seem to be a genuine threat to a much cherised local service. I am confident that the local community will fight this, however, and already some neighbours have designed some posters to raise awareness.
There is an opportunity to find out more about this, or any other local issue that concerns you, at the next Community Forum at 7pm on Tuesday, 16th October at The Hawthorn Centre, Rochford Hospital, Union Lane.
