Rebecca Blake, Labour’s Parliamentary Candidate for Redditch will visit Royal Mail's Redditch delivery office today to thank staff for their year round efforts, especially in delivering the Christmas mail.
Rebecca will tour the delivery office to see how local posties deal with festive mail and will chat to the hardworking staff who ensure a first class service for Redditch residents.
Ms Blake will make an early start in order to meet the office’s manager and the postmen and women who are responsible for ensuring that Redditch’s huge Christmas mailbag is delivered to over 42,000 addresses at Royal Mail’s busiest time of year.
Rebecca said: “It’s been a tough year for Royal Mail with the government making a botched sell off and giving competitors an unfair advantage by tying Royal Mail to service delivery that competitors do not have to meet, such as the six day a week service.
“I’m looking forward to being able to thank staff personally for everything they are doing, day in, day out for people in Redditch, especially at this crucial time of year and wishing them a Merry Christmas.”
