Post Office has confirmed that their branch in Sidcup High Street will close on June 28.

The decision to close the post office follows the recent resignation of branch's dedicated postmaster, coupled with the landlord's decision to not let the building to Post Office after this date.

When contacted for comment, a Post Office spokesman said that although the situation is unfortunate, the company will be actively seeking a partnership with potential future retailers looking to lease the space
