Busy post­ing Christ­mas cheer

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

IT IS easy to get caught up in the ex­cite­ment of the sea­son.

But spare a thought for those who are mak­ing it all hap­pen be­hind the scenes.

The post of­fice at Monto has been in­un­dated with Christ­mas pack­ages.

Both in de­liv­ery and re­ceipt of mail, the post of­fice team says the busiest time for the cen­tre is be­tween 9am and noon.

Em­ployee Mer­ryn King said the post of­fice had been “swamped” for Christ­mas.

But the team is still man­ag­ing to main­tain a smile and a pos­i­tive out­look, de­spite the in­crease in pa­trons.

“We are cop­ing with the in­flux but it is noth­ing a bot­tle of wine or box of choco­lates can’t fix, af­ter hours of course,” Ms King said.

“It will be nice to get through the rush and ex­pe­ri­ence the true spirit of Christ­mas.”

The team at Monto Post Of­fice will be tak­ing a well-earned day off on Christ­mas Day.
