Cathy Peattie MSP visited Royal Mail’s Grangemouth and Bo’ness Delivery Offices to pass on best Christmas wishes and encouragement to the postmen and women at their busiest time of year.
Mrs Peattie was shown round the Grangemouth Delivery Office by local Delivery Office manager Craig Barclay, and in Bo’ness by Grant Skeldon, and was introduced to all the postmen and women who are working hard doing their bit to sort and deliver the area’s share of the estimated total Scottish Christmas postbag of 214 million items.
Cathy Peattie MSP said: “I was delighted to meet our hard-working Royal Mail postmen and women at Grangemouth and to see at first hand just how much effort they put into delivering for people at this time of year.
“Posties do such an important job throughout the year and particularly when they are so busy, I’d like to thank them for their efforts and wish them all the best over the festive period.”
Craig and Grant noted that “Christmas is the busiest time of year, and our people really do pull out all the stops throughout the year to ensure mail is delivered quickly but even more so over the busy festive period. So we are pleased that Mrs Peattie came along to witness the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.”
He added: “The postal staff do a fantastic job at this time of year to ensure that friends and families stay in touch through their Christmas greetings and gifts. And as usual, we urge our customers to post early so that friends and family have longer to enjoy their Christmas greetings!”
