Update 15 September 2023 - Applicant for new Post Office
Greg has received the very positive news from Post Office Ltd that they have an applicant for the Fulham Post Office. As residents will know, the Post Office which was previously located within the Co-op supermarket on North End Road is now temporarily closed. The Co-op will be taken over by Lidl, but without the Post Office branch.
Greg has been campaigning hard on this local issue – residents need a Post Office. This is why his petition was signed by 1,488 residents. The message is clear from local residents – save our beloved North End Road Post Office!
Post Office Ltd have told Greg that they are now working as quickly as possible with the applicant and Greg will of course keep residents updated.

Update 18 July 2023 - Greg presents his petition
Since the announcement in Autumn 2022, that the North End Road Post Office would close in September 2023, Greg has been campaigning to retain a Post Office in the North End Road vicinity.
The Post Office is currently located within the Co-op supermarket at 254 North End Road and is a vital service for many residents. However, later this year, Lidl are set to take over the premises. Greg has met with Post Office Ltd on numerous occasions and has written to both Lidl UK and Lidl HQ in Germany to voice concerns and make the case for retaining our Post Office. Unfortunately, Lidl are displaying no effort to retain a Post Office, therefore forcing the closure of this much needed and much-loved local amenity.
On Friday 14 July 2023 Greg presented his petition with 1488 signatures to Post Office Ltd, calling upon Post Office Ltd to retain a Post Office in the vicinity of North End Road, Fulham, SW6. The message is clear from local residents – save our beloved North End Road Post Office!
The threatened closure of the main Fulham Post Office will be devastating for local residents. When the Fulham Crown Post Office closed in 2003, Post Office Ltd assured Greg there would continue to be a major branch on or just off North End Road. Greg is urging them to keep fulfilling that pledge.
