I’m pleased to say that Labour’s year-long campaign to restore the post box in Stoke Village has successfully forced a u-turn by the Royal Mail.
They have now accepted the case for reinstalling a post box in Stoke Village and plan to install a new post box within 14-16 weeks.
As a proud Janner I will never let our community be worse off and will fight to protect our community facilities big or small.
I’ve been working closely with our fantastic Stoke Labour councillors – Tom Briars-Delve, Sally Cresswell and Jemima Laing – on this campaign. Hundreds of residents signed Plymouth Labour’s petition, which I presented to Parliament in July last year.
The Speaker of the House of Commons, Sir Lindsay Hoyle MP, has even added his support to the campaign.
This is a big win for teamwork, for Stoke Village and for the hundreds of people who have signed the petition calling for its return.
We did it!
