Chairman of Sedgemoor District Council, Councillor Mike Cresswell will be making two early morning starts to share Christmas greetings with postmen and women at Bridgwater (December 11th) and Burnham on Sea (December 18th) sorting offices. 04/12/18
Christmas is Royal Mail's busiest time of the year and Councillor Cresswell is keen to thank the local postal workers for their hard work in sorting and delivering festive parcels, cards and letters.
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.
The last recommend posting dates for Christmas are:
Second Class - Tuesday 18 December 2018
First Class - Thursday 20 December 2018
Special Delivery - Saturday 22 December 2018
Customers can also help Royal Mail ensure that all their letters, cards and parcels are delivered as quickly and efficiently as possible by taking a few easy steps:
Post early - Avoid disappointment by posting your cards and parcels early.
Use the postcode - A clearly addressed card or parcel, with a postcode, and return address on the back of the envelope, will ensure quick and efficient delivery.
Use Special Delivery - For valuable and important packages and parcels guarantee delivery with Royal Mail's Special Delivery, which means your gift is tracked, traced and insured against loss.
Wrap parcels well and always give a return address
