Saturday Delivery Suspended

Royal Mail has announced that Saturday letter deliveries will be temporarily suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. This is because of high levels of coronavirus-related absences and necessary social distancing measures.

Starting from May 2, letters will only be delivered from Monday to Friday.

However, Royal Mail has said most parcels – including special delivery and tracked services, as well as non-account services would continue to operate six days per week.

Collections from businesses, post offices and post boxes on Saturday will also continue.

Note from the editor – Don’t forget to thank your postie for continuing to work!
