After an early 12th December 2008 Friday morning start, Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP paid his annual visit to the to the Royal Mail deliverers at Cirencester sorting office to wish our postmen and women a Happy Christmas. He discovered that the volume of mail is currently higher than Royal Mail were predicting at this time of year. It is therefore only as a result of this dedicated team of postmen and women and their outstanding service that they are able to meet tighter and tighter targets which are being set by the Royal Mail.

Just as Geoffrey arrived, it was raining on top of the ice and reports arrived that one of the Post Office vans was stuck. On hearing the news Mr Clifton-Brown commented: “this clearly demonstrates that postmen really do have to deliver whatever the weather”!
