At 2pm on Friday 9 November customers of Carrington Post Office marched from outside the Post Office on Mansfield Road to John Heppell, MPs office in Trinity Square to deliver 3,500 signatures Later, this will be presented to the House of Commons.
The march formed the culmination of a campaign to save Carrington Post Office which has involved three Residents' Associations working together and residents from Carrington, Sherwood, Sherwood Rise, Mapperley Park and the Arboretum campaigning together for the first time ever.
In just four weeks, the residents have delivered 5,000 leaflets, held three demonstrations, a wheelchair accessibility test, conducted our own branch access reports, written the most amount of letters that John Heppell, MP has ever received on a single issue, generated media coverage and collected 3,500 signatures.
Councillors from Sherwood, Berridge and Mapperley have all been invited to attend.
