MP JESSICA Morden visited Royal Mail’s Newport East delivery office to pass on Christmas wishes and encouragement to the postal staff at their busiest time of year.
Ms Morden was shown around the office this week by delivery office manager, John Desmond, and was introduced to the postmen and women who are working hard sorting and delivering all cards and parcels in the Newport East area in the run-up to Christmas.
Jessica Morden MP said: “It was great to meet the dedicated, hard-working Royal Mail postmen and women at Newport East delivery office and to see first-hand just how much effort they put into delivering for people at this time of year.
“Postmen and women do such an important job at this time of year.
“I would like to thank them for their efforts and wish them all the best over the busy festive period.”
John Desmond, Royal Mail delivery office manager at Newport East, said: “Christmas is the busiest time of year for Royal Mail.
" Our people pull out all the stops throughout the year to ensure mail is delivered quickly, but even more so over the busy festive period.
“We are grateful that Jessica Morden MP came along to see the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.
“Our people do a fantastic job at this time of year to ensure that friends and families stay in touch through their Christmas greetings and gifts.
“We’d like to remind our customers to post early so that friends and family have longer to enjoy their Christmas greetings!”
