ANGUS South MSP Graeme Dey has praised Royal Mail workers for their efforts in the run up to Christmas after visiting the Arbroath sorting office.
On Friday, Mr Dey dropped into the office to see how they cope at one of their busiest times.
After the visit Mr Dey said: “I was delighted to have the chance to pop into the sorting office in Arbroath which is presently handling an average of 180,000 pieces of mail per day.
“The Arbroath office serves quite a sizeable rural area in addition to the town, and manager Ryan Taylor and his 42 staff are certainly putting a great deal of effort into meeting the demands that the festive season places on the postal service.
“We only have to think back to this time last year, when Angus was beset by snow and ice, to realise just what Royal Mail staff sometimes have to overcome to ensure our letters, cards and packages reach us.”
