MP praises posties during busiest time of the year
MP James Heappey has visited a local Royal Mail Delivery Office
to thank postmen and women for all their hard work during Royal
Mails busiest period of the year.
Mr Heappey saw at first-hand the operation of delivering Christmas
post to addresses across the area and to pass on seasons greetings
to the busy staff.
Mr Heappey said: "When you walk in to a sorting office at this
time of year it is just the most staggering sight. Thousands of
parcels, tens of thousands of letters and in the middle of it all;
a small number of extraordinarily hard-working postmen and women
ready to deliver our mail in all weathers. Some were even in shorts!"
"Im hugely grateful to them for all the hard work they
put in at this time of year."
The last recommended posting dates for Christmas are: Second Class
Tuesday 20 December, First Class - Wednesday 21 December
and Special Delivery - Thursday 22 December.
