Joel James MS has passed on Christmas greetings to postmen and women at Cardiff’s sorting office and wishes them and their families well for the New Year.
Christmas is Royal Mail’s busiest time of the year and Joel James saw the hard work and dedication of postmen and women to sort and deliver festive parcels, cards and letters.
Joel also took the opportunity to thank everyone at Royal Mail all their hard work throughout the Covid pandemic and recognises their dedication to our Nation in keeping our vital postal system running.
Joel James MS visited Cardiff’s sorting office on Penarth Road to pass on Season’s Greetings to the Royal Mail team who are working hard to deliver cards and gifts in time for Christmas. It was also an opportunity to thank postal workers for all their hard working during the pandemic.
Joel was shown around Cardiff sorting office on Penarth Road by the Delivery Office Manager and was introduced to postmen and women as they gear up for Christmas. He heard how the team have worked tirelessly over the past eighteen months to keep communities connected and businesses trading.
Joel said: “As key workers, Royal Mail staff have been working flat out with little respite throughout the pandemic and it is getting even busier in the run up to Christmas."
“It was great to meet the team here at Penarth Road and to thank them in person for their extraordinary efforts. As we approach the Christmas season they will be delivering Christmas parcels and cards, spreading a bit of cheer after what has been a very challenging year for many. I hope that we can all do our bit by posting our cards and gifts early."
“On behalf of all my constituents in South Wales Central I would thank you for everything you do!”
The Royal Mail Delivery Office Manager, said: “We are proud to have played our part throughout the pandemic, keeping the community connected. There’s no doubt it has been challenging, but we remain very grateful to our customers for their support and for keeping us so busy! Now we will be working even harder to deliver Christmas parcels and cards, so it was a real boost to have a visit from Joel to see the operation and to support the team.”
