Postal workers at Royal Mail’s delivery office in Kenilworth were given some festive cheer after the deputy leader of Warwickshire County Council, Cllr Alan Cockburn, thanked them for all their hard work after visiting the office personally.
Cllr Cockburn was shown around the office and was introduced to the staff who sort and deliver everyone’s Christmas cards by the delivery office manager, Marc Lyle.
Cllr Cockburn said: “There is a huge amount of effort and dedication that goes into delivering a first class Christmas at Royal Mail’s busiest time of year. It was great to meet the team here at Kenilworth.
“Our postal workers do such an important job at this time of year and I would like to thank them for their efforts and wish them all the best over the busy festive period.”
Marc Lyle said: “Our postmen and women are working extremely hard to deliver Christmas cards, letters and parcels to people across Kenilworth. We are grateful that the Deputy Leader visited the office to see our operation and to support the team.
“We’d like to remind our customers to post early so that friends and family have longer to enjoy their Christmas greetings. We would also like to ask everyone to please always use the postcode as this helps us greatly in the job that we do at this busy time.”
The last recommended posting dates for Christmas are: for second class, Saturday December 19, for first class, Monday December 21, and for special delivery, Wednesday December 23.
Royal Mail also advise to put a return address on the back of any cards sent.
