Royal Mail deliveries

After months of receiving mail late in the day and magazines arriving days after they are supposed to, we now have a much improved service.
Has their been a change of Manager or have the posties found their alarm clocks? Anyway much appreciated, long may it last!

I agree. Interestingly, I received a package today via a private courier - despatched 8 July; arrived 19 July. 11 days - that's private sector efficiency for you.

Clifford, why don't you climb in your time machine and go back to the seventies when every thing was nationalised and it all worked 'really well'.

I really dislike the post now arriving after midday now. If you have a package or anything you waste a day sitting around waiting for it to come at any time!
It seems they just love leaving the sorry you were out cards but the times on them are an absolute joke.
Post being delivered at 1:30 pm or 3:45 pm?
Absolute joke.

I really can't see what the issue is about receiving post at that time of day. Most people go to work around 8 and don't get back until after 5 so what's the big deal? Do you expect to have post before you go to work?

We used to get post before 9:30
Its barely a working day when postie is starting his round at 11:30.
Or even back in the day of two deliveries in one day ?

Our postman came just as I was leaving for work at half nine on Saturday and I have seen them around a lot earlier in general lately. Could be a new policy or could be they've just reorganised the routes and our house is now nearer the start fo the circuit.

Perhaps they are earlier as her at number 22 K------- Road is on holiday and fag ash Lil is getting too old?..................Just a thought.

our post is always between 12-2 except when postie on holiday then the cover man gets here around 9-10

I spoke to our local Postie today to compliment him on the improved service.
He said that 'it won't last as the bosses intend to stop 'the job and finish' system and make them leave the depot later in order to ensure they all worked the full hours.
This will again mean late deliveries and less mail delivered............PROGRESS?!

Thanks, David 2. You weren't bothered by the traffic or people walking right past front window? more
