This is a temporary page to promote the Save the West Denton Post Office online petition.
"The Post Office is closing the West Denton Post Office. West Denton Post Office is walking distance for many thousands of local residents, providing services that are not available at Westerhope, Chapel House or Chapel Park Post Offices.
West Denton is one of the few Post Offices in the West of Newcastle to provide a driving licence renewal service and this service is not available in the city centre - the closest alternatives are Throckley or Gosforth (where parking charges apply). West Denton also provides a passport checking service and DBS identity check service that is not available in other local Post Offices.
We the undersigned demand that the Post Office rethinks the closure of the our local Post Office and call on Newcastle City Council to pass a motion to formally object to the closure plans."
