Pete Wishart, Member of Parliament for Perth & North Perthshire, has visited Royal Mail’s Perth Delivery Office this morning (11th December) to pass on Christmas wishes and encouragement to postmen and women at this their busiest time of year.
Mr Wishart was shown around the office by Delivery Office Manager, Timothy Sibbons, and was introduced to the postmen and women who are working hard sorting and delivering mail in the Perth area during the Festive season.
Speaking after the early morning visit Pete Wishart said:
“I always look forward to this annual opportunity to catch up with our hardworking postmen and women as they work to ensure the postal service runs smoothly through the Christmas period. It really is a mammoth task dealing with such a surge in post around this time of year and it always amazes me to see the operation in action.
“We all rely very heavily on the Royal Mail, especially so at Christmas, and I would like to thank them for their commitment and wish them all the best over the busy festive period.”
Timothy Sibbons, Royal Mail Delivery Office Manager at Perth, commented:
“Our postmen and women are working extremely hard to deliver Christmas cards, letters and parcels to people across Perth. We are grateful that Pete Wishart visited the office to see our operation and to support the team.
“We’d like to remind our customers to post early so that friends and family have longer to enjoy their Christmas greetings. We would also like to ask everyone to please always use the postcode as this helps us greatly in the job that we do at this busy time.”
