The Mayor of Mid & East Antrim has visited Larne Delivery Office to see first-hand the operation of delivering Christmas post and to pass on season’s greetings to its hardworking staff.

Councillor Audrey Wales was shown around the office by Delivery Office Manager, Tony Curran, and was introduced to the postmen and women, who are pulling out all the stops to sort and deliver mail in the Larne area over the Christmas period in a ‘First Class’ fashion.

She said: “At no other time is the hard work and dedication of postmen and women clearer than during the festive period. I thank them for the extraordinary lengths they go to ensure Christmas cards and presents are delivered to loved ones on time, and for all they do year-round.”

Tony Curran, Royal Mail Delivery Office Manager in Larne, said: “It was a pleasure to show Councillor Wales our Christmas operation and to hear her kind words of encouragement and support.

“We are extremely proud of our postmen and women for all their hard work during the Festive Season and for continuing our proud history of delivering Christmas mail.”

The last recommended posting dates for Christmas are: Second Class – Tuesday, December 20, First Class - December 21, and and Special Delivery - Thursday, December 22. Avoid disappointment by posting early and use a postcode.
