Postal workers at Daventry’s Royal Mail delivery office had a visit from the chairman of DDC.

The chairman of Daventry District Council, Cllr Deanna Eddon visited Royal Mail’s Daventry delivery office to pass on Christmas wishes and encouragement to postmen and women at their busiest time of year.

Cllr Eddon was shown around the office by delivery office manager, Paul Troughton, and was introduced to the postmen and women who are working hard sorting and delivering mail in the Daventry area during the festive season.

Cllr Eddon, said: “There is a huge amount of effort and dedication that goes into delivering a first class Christmas at Royal Mail’s busiest time of year. It was great to meet the team here at Daventry.

“Our postal workers do such an important job at this time of year and I would like to thank them for their efforts and wish them all the best over the busy festive period.”

Paul Troughton, royal mail delivery office manager at Daventry, commented: “Our postmen and women are working extremely hard to deliver Christmas cards, letters and parcels to people across Daventry. We are grateful that the chairman visited the office to see our operation and to support the team.

“We’d like to remind our customers to post early so that friends and family have longer to enjoy their Christmas greetings. We would also like to ask everyone to please always use the postcode as this helps us greatly in the job that we do at this busy time.”

The last recommend posting dates for Christmas are:

Second Class – Saturday 19 December

First Class – Monday 21 December
