Beckenham Business Association is supporting the Post Office Workers Union (CWU) in the Save Beckenham Crown Post Office campaign to stop the closure of the Post Office on Rectory Road, Beckenham. 

The action follows the Post Office’s announcement of 42 branches being planned to be closed or franchised across the country, including the Beckenham Crown Post Office.

The ‘action’ started last Saturday (2 April), when the Chairs of Beckenham Business Association, Copers Cope Area Residents’ Association, Beckenham Town Centre Team and West Beckenham Residents’ Association took to the streets outside Beckenham Post Office to speak to the public and local businesses and gain petition signatures. Further action is planned for Saturday 16 April.

An online petition, organised by Copers Cope Area Residents’ Association on, has already received over 1,000 signatures.

Jackie Groundsell, Chair of Beckenham Business Association, said: “Beckenham Crown Post Office is always heaving with local people, small businesses with mountains of parcels and people changing monies for trips abroad. I’m always amazed how the staff manage such volume so efficiently.” 

Ian Ward, CWU’s national executive member, said: "Beckenham is such a well-used Post Office, with six dedicated staff. Why does that need to change, when the alternative would be a far inferior service that will have an immediate negative impact on both local residents and businesses?"
