Postal workers in Beverley welcomed local MP Graham Stuart to their sorting office in the Beverley.
The MP for Beverley and Holderness visited the Postal Workers praising them for their efforts. He was impressed with how they were getting the mail out to people.
Mr Stuart was given a tour of the facility at Annie Reed Road by Manager Allan Sugden. While there Mr Stuart said he was impressed with the efforts of staff.
Commenting on his visit he said;
“I was pleased to visit the Beverley Delivery Office and meet the staff who help deliver a great Christmas across our area.”
“The Royal Mail staff work hard all year round. During my visit, I saw first-hand how much busier they are during the Christmas period. They really do go into overdrive.”
“I was thoroughly impressed by the efficient processes they use to ensure all of our mail and packages are delivered on-time.”
“It is also amazing how thousands of items are processed in a short period of time and made ready for distribution.”
“I want thank Manager Allan Sugden and everyone at Beverley Delivery Office for welcoming me today. It was a treat to see behind the scenes and talk with the staff.”
“We should all thank the staff there for the excellent service they provide and come together in wishing them a very Merry Christmas.”
“Also I hope that they enjoy a well-deserved rest over the festive period.”
Postal Workers Thank MP For Taking Time To Visit Them At Work
Royal Mail Delivery Sector Manager for Lincolnshire and Humberside Jack Mitchell said;
“It was great to have Graham visit us today and for him to see the staff during the busy Christmas period. I want to thank Graham for taking the time to visit.”
Mr Stuart’s visit to the distribution centre in Beverley comes just days after it was confirmed the town centre post office will be closed.
The decision, while expected, has left many people feeling let down. Concerns in the community are growing about its relocation to the WH Smith store on Toll Gavel.
Mr Stuart himself had urged people to write to him and fight the decision. He said he would also personally be writing to Post Office chiefs asking them to think again.
While the post office said they would hold a public consultation, they say it will not impact their decision.
They say while they want to hear from the public, it is only the relocation they wish to talk about. They have also said they are not interested in hearing peoples views on them franchising it out.
