Politicians Deliver Christmas Wishes to Deeside Postal Workers
Alyn and Deeside politicians popped in to deliver Christmas wishes to their local postal workers.
Mark Tami MP and Carl Sargeant, who is the local Assembly Member but was also visiting in his capacity as Cabinet Secretary for Communities and Children, saw first-hand the operation of delivering Christmas post.
They passed on season’s greetings to the diligent staff and thanked them for their hard work during the Royal Mail’s busiest period, as millions of people shop online for gifts and send Christmas cards and parcels.
They were shown around the office by Deeside Delivery Manager, Marco Trebbi, and were introduced to the postmen and women who are pulling out all the stops to sort and deliver mail in the local area over the Christmas period.
As Royal Mail’s 500th anniversary draws to a close, this Christmas provides an opportunity to reflect on the centuries of hard work, delivering to every single address in the UK.
Mr Tami said: “I’d like to thank all the postal workers for the lengths they go to ensure that all these presents are safely delivered and that’s even before they start on the cards.
Mr Sargeant said: “And let’s not forget the excellent service we get from them all year-round.”
Marco Trebbi, Royal Mail Delivery Manager, said: “It was a pleasure to show Mark and Carl our Christmas operation and to hear their kind words of encouragement and support.”
“We are extremely proud of our postmen and women for all their hard work during the festive season and for continuing our proud history of delivering Christmas mail.”
The last recommend posting dates for Christmas are: Second Class – Tuesday, December 20, First Class – Wednesday, December 20, Special Delivery – Thursday, December 22.
Customers can also help Royal Mail ensure that all their letters, cards and parcels, are delivered as quickly and efficiently as possible by taking a few easy steps:
*Post early – Avoid disappointment by posting your cards and parcels early.
*Use a postcode – A clearly addressed card or parcel, with a postcode, and return address on the back of the envelope, will ensure quick and efficient delivery. Spotted something? Got a story? Send a Facebook Message | A direct message on Twitter | Email: News@Deeside.com
