Mail shake-up could see afternoon post deliveries in Burnham
in Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge could soon have to wait until
the afternoon for their daily postal deliveries, Royal Mail has
said this week.
restructuring plan is being introduced that may result in some
customers not receiving their post by lunchtime.
Mail says the changes are necessary because of an increase in
the numbers of parcels being carried by postal workers that mean
some delivery techniques, such as bicycles, need to change.
delivery routes will see 13,000 households in the postcode areas
TA8 and TA9 affected.
household and business impacted will receive a letter from Royal
Mail over the next few weeks outlining the changes.
