Evennett visits delivery office to see festive operations

Rt Hon Sir David Evennett, MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford, paid a visit to the Royal Mail delivery office in Bexleyheath this morning to see first-hand the operation of delivering Christmas post, and to pass on his Christmas wishes to the postmen and women at their busiest time of year.

Sir David was shown around the site by Deputy Line Manager, Donna Barrett, and was introduced to the postmen and women who are working hard doing their bit to sort and deliver all the cards and parcels locally in the run-up to Christmas in 11 days.

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.

Sir David commented: “it’s a pleasure to visit the delivery office today to meet and chat with the postmen and women, and to thank them for delivering our mail services throughout the year, in all weathers, but particularly this month during the busy festive season”.

Ms Barrett, said: “our postmen and women will be working extremely hard to deliver Christmas parcels, cards, letters and parcels. We are grateful that Sir David visited the office to see our operation and to support the team”.
