The closure of Sidcup Post in June leaves a gap on the High Street. Although the Post Office are cleat that closure is 'temporary' we need a new branch as soon as possible. So many people use the Post Office and it also strengthens the High Street as a whole.
I've been in regular contact with the Post Office underlining the need to see that a branch on Sidcup High Street is re-opened as speedily as possible. I've underlined the need for urgent steps to be taken to identify a new site and Postmaster and minimize disruption. As well as the Post Office, I have been in contact with Bexley Council and Sidcup Partners to see that all options are being pursued to locate new premises and see that a new branch is opened as quickly as possible.
The Post Office are now seeking a replacement Postmaster to run a Post Office in Sidcup and are advertising the opportunity via their Run a Post Office website - https://runapostoffice.co.uk/home/result/show/sidcup-post-office-sidcup…
The replacement Post Office will also be a ‘Main branch’ which operates from a dedicated Post Office area as well as a service point on the retail counter and offers the widest range of Post Office services.
I will maintain pressure on the Post Office and do all that I can to see that a Post Office is restored to Sidcup High Street.
