Thanks to our Posties!
We were shown round the office by local Delivery Office Manager, Paul Atherton, and were introduced to the postmen and women who are working hard sorting and delivering all cards and parcels in the Wigan area in the run-up to Christmas.
Postmen and women do such an important job at this time of year. I like to thank them for their efforts and wish them all the best over the busy festive period.
Paul Atherton told me that Christmas is the busiest time of year for Royal Mail. Posties pull out all the stops throughout the year to ensure mail is delivered quickly, but even more so over the busy festive period.
This year the recommended last posting dates for mail are:
• Friday 20 December for 1st Class items
• Wednesday 18 December for 2nd Class items
• Monday 23 December for Special Delivery items
Saturday 14 December for airmail items to Western Europe (excluding France, Greece, Poland).
