Postal workers in the districts delivery offices were delighted to see our Chairman and councillors turn up early in the morning to offer them Christmas cheer and encouragement.
Chairman Liz Webster met postal workers at the Epping delivery office on Thursday 3 December 2015, seeing first hand the hard work and dedication of those who sort and deliver our festive mail.
Chairman Liz Webster visited Royal Mail’s Epping office, and Vice-chairman Jeane Lea went to the Debden office with Councillor Tony Boyce going to the Ongar office.
Overwhelmed by the volume
Chairman Liz Webster said: “I was overwhelmed by the volume of post that has to be sorted and delivered. Christmas is Royal Mail’s busiest time of the year, and today is one of the busiest days of the year so far.”
“I want to wish our postmen and women a merry Christmas and thank them for their hard work, dedication and commitment during the year. It was great to meet them and find out more about their work.”
