GPO treat for staff, cus­tomers

Daily Nation (Barbados) - - Front Page -

POSTAL WORK­ERS and cus­tomers were given a treat yes­ter­day when World Postal Day was cel­e­brated at the Gen­eral Post Of­fice (GPO) in Cheap­side, The City.

Act­ing Deputy Post­mas­ter Gen­eral Iris Lash­ley said the treat was the GPO’S way of show­ing ap­pre­ci­a­tion to the pa­trons.

“We’re cel­e­brat­ing World Postal Day, which is a day cel­e­brated across the world. We are a part of the univer­sal postal union, a union that con­sists of 192 coun­tries. We cel­e­brate World Postal Day in or­der to give back to the cus­tomers and al­low them to recog­nise how im­por­tant a role we play in the day-to-day com­mu­nity.

“For in­stance, in Bar­ba­dos the Post Of­fice has been an es­tab­lish­ment in the com­mu­nity for 165 years, and we just take this op­por­tu­nity today to cel­e­brate the cus­tomers and our postal staff.

“We have per­sons from a num­ber of or­gan­i­sa­tions across Bar­ba­dos, and we have come here today to share in the dif­fer­ent ser­vices that some of th­ese or­gan­i­sa­tions give,” she said. ( RA)
