The Provost of Angus this week delivered some Christmas cheer to the hard-working posties of Arbroath.
Provost Helen Oswald visited the Royal Mail’s Arbroath delivery office on Tuesday to pass on her Christmas greetings to the staff and also saw their hard work and dedication in the run up to their busiest time of year.
Councillor Oswald was shown around the office by delivery office manager Ryan Taylor and was introduced to the postmen and women who will be ensuring everybody receives their Christmas cards and parcels this year.
The Provost said: “It was great to meet postmen and women at Royal Mail’s Arbroath delivery office and see first-hand just how much effort they put into delivering for people at this time of year.
“Our postal workers do such an important job at this time of year and help to deliver Christmas for many people and families in our area. I would like to thank them for their efforts and wish them all the best over the busy festive period.”
Mr Taylor added: “Our postmen and women are working extremely hard to deliver Christmas cards, letters and parcels to people across Arbroath. We are grateful that Provost Helen Oswald visited the office to see our operation and to support the team during our busiest time of year.
“We’d like to remind our customers to post early so that friends and family have longer to enjoy their Christmas greetings.”
The last recommend posting dates for Christmas are: Second Class – Thursday, December 18; First Class – Saturday, December 20; and Special Delivery – Tuesday, December 23.
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 to avoid disappointment; Use a postcode and ensure address is legible and include a return address on the back; and use Special Delivery for valuable packages, which will see gifts tracked, traced and insured against loss.
