You'd like to think someone from the post office would come on here and tell us wouldn't you? Pah!

Why? Everyone in Lewes doesn't read it.

Clifford, that is the most unsyntactical sentence I have read on this Forum - and that's saying something. Go to the top of the class.

Of course, if they hadn't closed down several post offices, there'd be a good chance that one or two would be open.

Sashimi - thanks. I don't know what came over me.

As some-one who has always supported the post office through the years I am being sorely tested. There is little excuse for not opening today, thousands of people have managed to get to work, thousands more are out doing their Christmas shopping but post office staff appear to be quite happy to use the weather as an excuse not to open. I saw a lady walking away from the PO with 3 parcels and I'm sure that there are many other disappointed customers today. Does little for customer service and even less in proving their value to a local community when the management act in this manner.

It does rather depend on where the post office staff live, JR. If they're coming from rural areas or a long way away, they may genuinely be unable to get in.
If they live in the Cliffe, they're taking the pee.

I saw on the news that we are to have deliveries tomorrow to try to clear the massive backlog of parcels.
I am waiting for 9 parcels all bought within the last 6 weeks.I don't hold out much hope of getting them for Christmas...

All this talk about parcel deliveries, I thought Santa delivered them on his sleigh which makes this weather ideal for him. Please dont say there is no Santa as I have personally seen him in about 8 different stores and that to me is Magic. So dont give up E BAYER Santa wont forget you.

Is it true - the post office was closed? I was going to go to the post office to post my Christmas cards today but because of being skint, I haven't bought any. I am thankful for small mercies!

I don't mean to be funny, but I never get a letter in Lewes when there is even a few flakes on the ground...coincidence? I have walked to collect a parcel they havent delivered, no bothe. I just think no-one is prepared to put in a bit of effort. I am awaiting 7 or so parcels....probably not a cat in Hell's chance now.

Apparently the post office wont let their men deliver in the snow, its a health and safety thing, Surprise Surprise. Its not the postmans fault, they are just obeying rules.

The doors to the post office were open this morning then were closed quite quickly, I can only assume that they can only operate with a crew of 3 or more and if only 2 could get in they would close.

A postie delivered a parcel a couple of doors along from me yesterday, so the ones in vans are obviously allowed out.

This is probably why they're selling the Post Office off in the very near future.

Yep, the vans are out delivering, I received a lot of parcels yesterday. Fingers crossed for the remainder.
