The Rickmansworth Royal Mail Delivery Office got a pre-Christmas surprise as the seasonal parcels rush reached its peak on Thursday December 13.
Chairman of the Three Rivers District Council, Cllr Phil Williams, passed on early Christmas greetings to postmen and women.
Christmas is Royal Mail’s busiest time of the year, and the chairman saw the hard work and dedication of local postal workers to sort and deliver festive parcels, cards and letters.
He got to see the operation of delivering Christmas post, was shown around the office by the delivery office manager and introduced to the postmen and women, who were busy sorting and distributing mail in Three Rivers during this busy period.
Cllr Williams said: “At no other time is the hard work and dedication of postmen and women clearer than during the festive period. There is a considerable amount of effort and commitment that goes into delivering a first-class Christmas all over the country.
“It was great to meet the team here in Ricky and thank them for the extraordinary lengths they will go to ensure Christmas parcels and cards are delivered to loved ones on time, as well as thanking them for delivering our mail services all through the year, in all weathers.”
Harry Johncox, Royal Mail Delivery Office Manager, said: “Our postmen and women will be working extremely hard to deliver Christmas parcels, cards, letters and parcels to people in Three Rivers. We are grateful that the chairman of the council, Phil Williams visited the office to see our operation and to support the team.
“We would like to remind our customers to post early this Christmas and to ensure all their mail is posted by the recommended dates so that friends and family can enjoy their Christmas greetings and parcels. If everyone uses the postcode on every item of mail, this also helps us greatly in the job that we do at this very busy time.”
You can help Royal Mail ensure that all letters, cards and parcels are delivered as quickly and efficiently as possible by posting early, using the postcode, use special delivery for valuable and important packages and always give a return address.
