Lilian visited the Clifton Delivery Office today to thank local postman and women for their hard work during the Royal Mail's busiest period. This year the Royal Mail has been celebrating its 500th anniversary, and this festive period marks a half millennium of delivering Christmas cards and parcels. She was able to see firsthand the operation of delivering the Christmas post.
Lilian was shown around the office by Delivery Office Manager, Andrew McNeill, and was introduced to the postmen and women, who are pulling out all the stops to sort and deliver mail in the Nottingham South area over the Christmas period.
Lilian said “At no other time is the hard work and dedication of postmen and women clearer than during the festive period.” I thank them for the extraordinary lengths they go to ensure Christmas cards and presents are delivered to loved ones on time, and for all they do year-round.”
