Post Office bosses have ignored your views and axed five vital branches in Harrow.
An announcement on May 7 confirmed The Hill, in High Street, Harrow on the Hill, The Quadrant in Headstone Gardens, Headstone Road Post Office, Buckingham Road Post Office in Chandos Crescent, Edgware, and Pinner Green Post Office, all face the chop.
This is despite the Harrow Observer's Save Our Post Offices campaign, supported by more than 500 readers.
The effect of the closures will be particularly felt by staff who will lose their jobs and the elderly and disabled who face long journeys to carry out important tasks.
One of the most controversial closure is that of The Hill, after measures to retain it were supported by Gareth Thomas, MP for Harrow West, residents and Harrow School.
The Hill manager M Ashok is to lose his job. He said: "We will definitely close and although we haven't been given an official date it looks set to be in early July. There isn't any
thing we can do but we are so grateful for everyone who has supported us and we want to thank the people that campaigned and helped over the past few months."
Post Office Ltd launched a six week consultation period in February on plans to shut 169 offices across London - and on Tuesday a mere seven were saved throughout the capital. Another seven are still under review.
Savaguru Supramaniam and his wife, Rathy, have managed The Quadrant for nine years. The fatherof-three, of Earls Crescent, Harrow, said: "We were very upset to hear the news because it means we will have to close the shop.
"We have a 12-year-old daughter who still needs our financial support so both of us will be out of a job, which is terrible."
Anita Turner, a spokeswoman for Post Office Ltd defended the cull. She said: "These are difficult decisions which have not been taken lightly. We have considered very carefully all the comments made during consultation."
