So let's all sign Willie Wragg's petition - although at the moment his petition website doesn't seem to be working.

The corrected address seems to be working fine: http://www.petitions24.com/save_our_royal_mail_delivery_offices

Where is the Stockport sorting office located, it used to be in Exchange Street but that closed years ago and is still empty?
It's at Green Lane SK4 2HQ, a 1km walk towards Heaton Mersey from the bus station. To quote one of the many (poor) Google reviews, "It's a pain in the arse to get to if you don't have a car".

the parcells can be left at the post office .

But they won't be - we can be sure of that.  Royal Mail was privatised five years ago, sold off at a discount price to the government's friends in the City, who (kerchinng!) made a fast buck as a result. And the government sold off its last 30% stake a year ago, ending 499 years of public ownership.  Yes, the Royal Mail was founded in 1516! 

So this is exactly the sort of cost-cutting we can expect,  and no doubt there will be more to come.  There are already fewer collections, no doubt the Saturday deliveries and collections will end soon, and the much prized universal postal service is only guaranteed for another five years, until 2021.

So delivery services will all be done from Stockport, and when we have to go to the sorting office to collect a parcel, because we are out when the postie called, or because s/he couldn't be bothered to ring the bell (yes, it happens), we'll have to go to Stockport.

So let's all sign Willie Wragg's petition - although at the moment his petition website doesn't seem to be working.

Events / All Saints' Church History : MLHS Summer Walk [21 August 2016]
« Last post by admin on August 19, 2016, 08:34:38 AM »
Marple Local History Society Summer walks in place of the monthly meetings have proved popular and the last one will be taking place very shortly.

Breaking the tradition of Monday meetings, this will occur on Sunday, 21st August at 4 pm.

It will be led by Society Chairman Hilary Atkinson and she introduces the walk:

All Saints has been the parish church for Marple for more than five centuries but how much do you know about it?  Find out about the three churches built on the site that have served the community over the years.  Why was the first church replaced in 1811 and why was was the present church built in 1880?   Visit the graves of some of the foundlings and apprentices who worked at Mellor Mill and Hollins Mill.  There are other graves of interest which we will visit and learn the stories of their occupants but the highlight of the tour will be entry into the Georgian bell tower where we will see several memorials, including those to Samuel Oldknow and his half brother, John Clayton, who ran Mellor Mill on his behalf.

Depending on the weather, please wear suitable clothing and footwear. There will be a charge of £3.00 per person which will be donated to The Eve Appeal registered charity number 1091708

The walk should take about 2 hours.

Meet at the main door to the All Saints Church at 4 pm on Sunday, 21st August.

More details can be found on the society website: www.mlhs.org.uk

Because they and their families have probably chosen to buy/rent a house near where they work - in Marple. And possibly send their kids to a school in Marple.
So postmen are Different than other people that must travel further than stockport to work .
