Keep Yatton Sorting Office in Yatton

0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!


Despite Royal Mail continuously denying the rumours, it has now been confirmed that the Sorting Office which operates out of Yatton Post Office will move to Clevedon in a matter of weeks. There are huge concerns that losing the Royal Mail business will put the counter service in jeopardy, and our growing community of 9,000 people (already without a bank) cannot afford to lose such a vital lifeline and community hub.

The services that will be moved to Sixways in Clevedon will not be accessible to many of the most vulnerable within our community, as there are no public transport links. Furthermore, the staff who will have to relocate have stated that they do not want to work out of Clevedon.

We feel that it is critical that Royal Mail should consult with the local community about its plans and be clear about the immediate and potential impacts that customers will suffer as a result. If you are concerned about the plans, and agree that the community should be consulted, please sign this petition and share far and wide.
