Royal Mail Christmas Visit

Peter Aldous MP has visited Royal Mail’s Lowestoft delivery office to pass on Christmas wishes and encouragement to postmen and women at their busiest time of year.
Mr Aldous was shown around the office by Delivery Office Manager, Peter Harper, and was introduced to the postmen and women who are working hard sorting and delivering mail in the run-up to Christmas. 
Mr Aldous said: “It was great to meet postmen and women at Royal Mail’s Lowestoft delivery office and see first-hand just how much effort they put into delivering for people at this time of year.
“Our postal workers do such an important job at this time of year and help to deliver Christmas for many people and families in our area. I would like to thank them for their efforts and wish them all the best over the busy festive period.”
Peter Harper, Royal Mail Delivery Office Manager at Lowestoft, commented: “Our postmen and women are working extremely hard to deliver Christmas cards, letters and parcels to people across Lowestoft. We are grateful that Peter visited the office to see our operation and to support the team during our busiest time of year.
“We’d like to remind our customers to post early so that friends and family have longer to enjoy their Christmas greetings.”
The last recommend posting dates for Christmas are:
Second Class – Thursday 18th December
First Class – Saturday 20th December
Special Delivery – Tuesday 23rd December 
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 a 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.
