Following local protests, the Royal Mail have said that will trial a new early morning delivery service to minimise the impact of closing the Hornsey Sorting Office.
The service will mean that parcels for N8 postcodes will be delivered between 7am and 9am, when people are most likely to be home.
More than 1000 residents protested against plans by Royal Mail to close the Hornsey sorting office and move services to the Bush Industrial Estate, N19. N4 services have been based there since the closure of the Harringay sorting office.
The Hornsey closure had quite a well organised campaign with Lynne Featherstone on board. That provided a sense of focus that the N4 closure lacked.
Our guys are brilliant at getting us before we go out. I've rarely had to pick up parcels as they do normally get to use before 8am.
Indeed they do - 'new early morning delivery' my a**e, it's exactly what we've had for years. They're hoping nobody realises and they can just get rid of the sorting office as planned. Sneaky.
