The Chairman of Lewes District Council, Cllr Tony Nicholson, has visited Royal Mail’s Seaford delivery office to pass on Christmas wishes and encouragement to postmen and women at their busiest time of year.

Cllr Nicholson was shown around the office by delivery office manager, Stephen Auwkit, and was introduced to the posties who are working hard sorting and delivering mail in the run-up to Christmas.

Cllr Nicholson said, “It was great to meet postmen and women and see first-hand just how much effort they put into delivering for people at this time of year.

“Our postal workers do such an important job at this time of year and help to deliver Christmas for many people and families in our area. I would like to thank them for their efforts and wish them all the best over the busy festive period.”

Mr Auwkit said, “Our postmen and women are working extremely hard to deliver Christmas cards, letters and parcels to people across Seaford. We are grateful that Cllr Nicholson visited the office to see our operation and to support the team during our busiest time of year.

“We’d like to remind our customers to post early so that friends and family have longer to enjoy their Christmas greetings.”

The last recommend posting dates for Christmas are: Second Class, December 18; First Class, December 20; Special Delivery, December 23.
