Jamie McGrigor, Highlands & Islands MSP, yesterday visited Royal Mail’s Oban delivery office to pass on Christmas wishes and encouragement to the postmen and women at their busiest time of year.
Jamie was shown round the office, and was introduced to the postal staff who are working hard sorting and delivering all cards and parcels in the Oban area in the run-up to Christmas.
“It was great to meet the dedicated, hard-working Royal Mail postmen at Oban delivery office and to see first-hand just how much effort they put into delivering for people at this time of year.
“Postmen and women do such an important job at this time of year. I like to thank them for their efforts and wish them all the best over the busy festive period”.
Jason King, Royal Mail Delivery Office Manager at Oban, said:
“Christmas is the busiest time of year for Royal Mail. Our people pull out all the stops throughout the year to ensure mail is delivered quickly, but even more so over the busy festive period. We are grateful that Jamie McGrigor MSP came along to see the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.
“Our people do a fantastic job at this time of year to ensure that friends and families stay in touch through their Christmas greetings and gifts. We’d like to remind our customers to post early so that friends and family have longer to enjoy their Christmas greetings!”
