Babergh Leader thanks local Postmen and Women as they gear up to deliver a first class Christmas

Babergh Leader thanks local Postmen and Women as they gear up to deliver a first class Christmas 

Babergh District Council Leader John Ward visited Royal Mail's Delivery Office in Hadlegh this morning to see first-hand the operation of delivering Christmas post and to pass on early Season's Greetings to its dedicated, hardworking staff.

Cllr Ward was shown around the office by Delivery Office Manager Wayne Farthing on Wednesday 5 December and was introduced to the postmen and women, who will be pulling out all the stops to sort and deliver mail in Babergh in the forthcoming busy Christmas period.

The Festive Season is Royal Mail's busiest period, as millions of people shop online for gifts as well as sending Christmas cards and parcels. Royal Mail also plays a key role in e-commerce for many businesses sending goods to customers throughout Christmas shopping season.

Cllr John Ward, Leader of Babergh District Council, said: "Our local postmen and women work hard throughout the year delivering our mail, but at Christmas time there work and dedication is clearer than ever: with so many items passing through the post this month their work is extraordinary and deserves to be recognised, both here in Babergh and across the country.

"It was wonderful to meet the team here in Hadleigh 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."

Wayne Farthing, 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 Babergh. We are grateful Cllr Ward visited the office to see our operation and to support the team.

"We'd 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."
