[Forum] Closure of Dennistoun Post Office
All, yet another attempted to downgrade services in the East End.
They're trying to sell the post office in Annfield Place (again!!). If you want to support a campaign to keep it open, please could you add your name to the online petition. Obviously, the more support we can get behind it, the better chance we have of succeeding. You can read more and sign the petition here: you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/save-dennistoun-post-office
