Mr Mackintosh 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 meet the teams here in Northampton.

“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.”


Ricki Pike, Royal Mail Delivery Office Manager at Northampton, said: “Our postmen and women are working extremely hard to deliver Christmas cards, letters and parcels to people across Northampton. We are grateful that David Mackintosh 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
