Do your car tax and passports on line,and use the free car park at Stoke to save car park charges at Mengham.

I'm just pleased we still have three post offices and that they are investing in a refurb for Mengham!

Yes for the simple reason,Havant Council have rented that site, for nearly thirty years, Now the owners want to sell it. If it is sold that would be the end of the Stoke Post Office,with nowhere for their customers and residents to park.The HBC are trying to get a new lease on this site,also there might be a Community buy out,but there is still a danger that we will lose this car park. please show your support, go to the Stoke Post Office and sign that you use this car park,it might just help.

Just to clear up any misunderstanding,its the car park that the council have been renting,not the Post Office.

We are actually lucky to have 3 post offices. In France, we'd probably have one for the size of Hayling's population and area, probably not open a full 6 days a week, but very prominent with its characteristic yellow paintwork and exclusively devoted to postal and related work, not having to combine with being some sort of retail outlet to be profitable.

And hammer another nail into the coffin for local post offices.

No, use the Eastoke Corner or Stoke Post offices, support Hayling not Havant!
