Senior Royal Mail Manager Gary Elsey, Nia Griffith MP and Post Person of the year, for three years in a row Neil O’Brien.

Nia Griffith MP for Llanelli has visited Royal Mail’s Llanelli Delivery Office to pass on Christmas wishes and encouragement to postmen and women at their busiest time of year.

She was shown around the office and was introduced to the postmen and women who are working hard sorting and delivering mail in parts of Llanelli during the festive season.

Nia said: “There is a huge amount of effort and dedication that goes into delivering a first class Christmas at Royal Mail’s busiest time of year. It was great to visit my local sorting office again and meet the team, particularly well done to Neil O’Brien who has won Post Person of the year, for three years in a row. Our postal workers do such an important job at this time of year and I would like to thank them for their efforts and wish them all the best over the busy festive period.”

Gary Elsey, Royal Mail Delivery Office Manager at Llanelli said: “Our postmen and women are working extremely hard to deliver Christmas cards, letters and parcels to people across the area. We are grateful that Nia visited the office to see our operation and to support the team.

“We’d like to remind our customers to post early so that friends and family have longer to enjoy their Christmas greetings. We would also like to ask everyone to please always use the postcode as this helps us greatly in the job that we do at this busy time.”

The last recommend posting dates for Christmas are:

Second Class – Saturday 19 December 2015
