I was pleased to visit two very busy sorting offices in the Liverpool Wavertree constituency to witness first hand our hard-working postal workers striving to deliver the very best Christmas to constituents.
A huge ‘thank-you’ to everyone at Liverpool South East and Mossley Hill delivery offices for pulling out all the stops to sort and deliver our mail in this incredibly busy festive period.
Christmas is Royal Mail’s busiest period, as millions of people shop online for gifts as well as sending Christmas cards and parcels. Royal Mail also plays a key role in e-commerce for many businesses sending goods and communications to customers throughout the Christmas shopping season.
Postal workers make an enormous effort to make sure that every card, letter and parcel makes its way from sender to receiver in time for Christmas and it really helps to make sure that the correct postcode and address are clearly marked on every item.
Customers do not need to travel to a Royal Mail Delivery office to pick up parcels if they can’t or do not want to. They can arrange a redelivery free of charge on a day that is convenient, including Saturdays, or Royal Mail can deliver the item to a different address within the same postcode area.
Please remember the last recommended posting dates for Christmas are:
- Second Class – Tuesday 18 December
- First Class – Thursday 20 December
- Special Delivery – Saturday 22 December
Thank you again to all the staff I met and to everyone working day and night to get our mail delivered.
