THANK you to the Islington Gazette for publicising our campaign and to all the people who came out in the cold this week to show their support for keeping Essex Road post office open.

THANK you to the Islington Gazette for publicising our campaign and to all the people who came out in the cold this week to show their support for keeping Essex Road post office open.

Thank you to Bridget Fox for organising the Save Essex Road Post Office campaign and to James Kempton and all the councillors for their support. The Zimmers, our families and all the community have been there for us.

A big thank you to all the businesses along Essex Road who put up our posters and for all the support they have given our petition. The support they have given is fantastic. The local shops are really important to our community. They will lose out if our post office closes. The Government is wrong to close so many post offices and we want them to change their mind.

Over 5,000 people have already signed our petition. We need Essex Road post office to stay open for all the pensioners, disabled, the mums, the local businesses who use it every day. We have already lost so many post offices and we can't let this one close

Post Office Ltd is sending representatives to the council's south area committee meeting at New North Community School on Tuesday, March 11, at 7.30pm.

We will be there to tell them that we won't let them take our post office away. - Dolores Murray of The Zimmers, Holland Passage, Basire Street, N1.
