John Swin­ney vis­ited the Royal Mail’s Blair­gowrie de­liv­ery of­fice on Fri­day last week to see first­hand the op­er­a­tion of sort­ing and de­liv­er­ing Christ­mas post and to pass on sea­son’s greet­ings to its hard-work­ing post­men and women.

Mr Swin­ney was shown around the of­fice by de­liv­ery of­fice manag e r Ni c o l a Saw e r s a n d was in­tro­duced to staff who are pulling out all the stops to sort and de­liver mail in Blair­gowrie over the Christ­mas pe­riod.

The fes­tive sea­son is Royal Mail’s busiest pe­riod, as mil­lions of peo­ple shop on­line for gifts and send Christ­mas cards and parcels.

M r S w i n n e y s a i d : “A t n o other time is the hard work and d e d i c a t i o n o f p o s t me n a n d women clearer than dur­ing the fes­tive pe­riod.

“There is a huge amount of ef­fort and ded­i­ca­tion that goes into de­liv­er­ing a first-class Christ­mas.

“It was great to meet the team again at Blair­gowrie and thank them for the ex­tra­or­di­nary lengths they go to to en­sure Christ­mas cards and presents are de­liv­ered to loved ones on time, and for all they do year-round.”

Ni­cola added: “Our post­men and women are work­ing e x t r e me l y h a r d t o s o r t a n d de­liver Christ­mas cards, let­ters and parcels to peo­ple across Blair­gowrie.

“We a re g rat e f u l t hat Jo h n again vis­ited the of­fice to see our op­er­a­tion and to sup­port the team.

“We’d l i k e t o r e mi n d o u r cus­tomers to post early so that friends and fam­ily have longer to en­joy their Christ­mas greet­ings and to ask them all to please also use the postcode as this helps us greatly in the job that we do at this busy time.”

The last rec­om­mend post­ing dates for Christ­mas are: sec­ond class – Wed­nes­day, De­cem­ber 20; first class – Thurs­day, De­cem­ber 21; and special de­liv­ery – Fri­day, De­cem­ber 22.
