Craig Mackinlay MP has visited the Sandwich Delivery Office to see first-hand the operation of delivering Christmas post and to pass on season’s greetings to its hardworking staff.
Craig was shown around the office by Delivery Office Manager, Michael Moore, and was introduced to the postmen and women, who are pulling out all the stops to sort and deliver mail in Sandwich over the Christmas period.
The Festive Season is Royal Mail’s busiest period, as millions of people shop online for gifts and send Christmas cards and parcels.
Craig Mackinlay MP said:
“At no other time is the hard work and dedication of postmen and women clearer than during the festive period. There is a huge amount of effort and dedication that goes into delivering a first class Christmas.
“It was great to meet the team here at Sandwich and thank them for the extraordinary lengths they go to ensure Christmas cards and presents are delivered to loved ones on time, and for all they do year-round.”
Michael Moore, Royal Mail Delivery Office Manager, said:
“Our postmen and women are working extremely hard to deliver Christmas cards, letters and parcels to people in Sandwich. We are grateful that Craig 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 and to please also use the postcode as this helps us greatly in the job that we do at this busy time.”
