The chairman of Aylesbury Vale District Council has visited Royal Mail’s Aylesbury delivery office to pass on encouragement to postal workers at one of their busiest times of the year.
Cllr Bloom was shown around the Royal Mail office in St John’s Road by delivery office manager Ena-Maria Gee, and met the men and women who are working hard sorting and delivering mail in the Aylesbury area during the festive season.
Cllr Bloom 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 Aylesbury.
“Our postal workers do such an important job at this time of year, they really are our local ‘heroes’ and I would like to thank them for their efforts and wish them all the best over the busy festive period.”
Ena-Maria Gee, Royal Mail delivery office manager at Aylesbury said: “Our staff are working extremely hard to deliver Christmas cards, letters and parcels to people across Aylesbury.
“We are grateful that the chairman 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.”
To ensure that your mail reaches its destination on time for Christmas you are advised to post by the following dates:
