Royal Mail workers in Kilburn got a surprise visit from their MP during a busy shift.
Tulip Siddiq, Labour MP for Hampstead and Kilburn, delivered Christmas greetings and encouragement to postmen and women at the Kilburn Delivery Office in Coventry Close.
She 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 Kilburn.
“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.”
Raymond Bosher, Royal Mail office manager, said: “Our postmen and women are working extremely hard to deliver Christmas cards, letters and parcels to people across Kilburn. We are grateful that Tulip 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 December 19 for second class and December 21 for first class. Special delivery items need to be posted by December 23.
