This week I joined the Royal Mail sorting office team in Flint to thank them for their tireless work and to wish them a merry Christmas.
 
This Monday, 10 December 2018, was National Postal Workers Day. This day was organised by the Communication Workers’ Union – the trade union that represents postal workers – and gave us all a chance to thank our local postie for the work they do.
 
Postal workers carry out their important work come rain or shine and this week gives us a chance to thank them for their dedicated efforts.
 
The Royal Mail delivers post to every one of our country’s 30 million addresses, six days a week, 52 weeks a year.
 
The hard-working Postmen and Postwomen of Delyn have some of the difficult postal addresses in the country to deliver to. It doesn’t take much for Delyn to be hit by heavy snow and they are ready and willing to get our letters and parcels to us on time.
 
Getting the chance to say thank you to those in the Flint sorting office is really important to me. Without postal workers the country would grind to a halt. I know I rely heavily upon them to ensure that constituents are supported.
 
Those who work in the Royal Mail and the Post Office are community driven people. Our towns and villages would be poorer without them. I would urge everyone over this festive season to wish your postie a very merry Christmas and to thank them for all they do.

I have written today to the Post Office to press for the long-term future of the Holywell branch to be secured. This comes about to reinforce the argument to keep the banks in Holywell High Street.

During Business, Energy and Industry Strategy Questions, I asked the Business Minister about how the Government is ensuring businesses, like those in Holywell, are able to maintain access to banking when branches continue to close. The Minister responded that protocols set by the Government dictate that when bank branches close services must be made available at the Post Office. Read more “Holywell Post Office”
