LOCAL MP David Davies has visited Royal Mail’s Abergavenny delivery office to pass on Christmas wishes and encouragement to staff at their busiest time of year.
Mr Davies was shown around the delivery office by manager Mark Waddon and was introduced to the postmen and women who are working hard to sort and deliver mail in the Abergavenny area over the festive period. He also viewed the Christmas 2014 stamps, which feature scenes of children singing carols, posting Christmas cards and building snowmen.
“The delivery office was a hive of activity and it was incredible to see first-hand just how much work goes into delivering post for people and families at this time of year,” said Mr Davies.
“Our postal workers really do pull out all the stops to deliver the Christmas mailbag come rain, shine or snow, especially in rural areas.
“I would like to thank them for their tremendous efforts and wish them all the best during the festive season.”
Mr Waddon added:
“Our postmen and women are working extremely hard to deliver Christmas cards, letters and parcels to people across Abergavenny.
“We are grateful that Mr Davies visited the office to see our operation and to support the team during our busiest time of year.
“We would like to remind customers to post early so that friends and family have longer to enjoy their Christmas greetings. A clearly addressed card or parcel, with a postcode and return address on the back of the envelope, will also ensure quick and efficient delivery.”
The last recommend posting dates for UK mail are Thursday 18thDecember for second class, Saturday 20th December for first class, and Tuesday 23rd December for Special Delivery.
