POST OFFICE

Islington’s economy chief has slammed the Post Office after it today confirmed it will press ahead with plans to franchise its Junction Road branch.

Protestors picketed the Upper Holloway Crown post office on Saturday in a bid to stop it being franchised.

Union chiefs fear plans to franchise the Upper Holloway Crown post office will dilute workers rights, threaten their pensions and lower customer standards – and they are organising a protest for January 26.

Financial difficulties at Islington Boys’ Club, in Parkurst Road, were said to have caused the termination of 31-year-old Mr W.C. Jennings appointment as full-time leader.

A Second World War veteran, former Islington councillor and dedicated trade unionist from Cally died last night – and cross-party voices today paid tribute to his life and memory.

“Highbury Corner plans welcomed” reads the Gazette headline. Changes to the roundabout are afoot. Campaigners battle to save a 100-year-old tree and urge people to support plans that would see the link between Upper Street and Holloway Road closed. The date? December 20, 2007.
