4:30pm Monday 8th October 2012 in News
CHANGES are being made to the way post is delivered to homes, shops and businesses in Birchwood.
New delivery methods and revised routes are being introduced on a phased basis Royal Mail has writted to every address in Birchwood explaining why the service is being modified.
A Royal Mail spokesman said: “Our postmen and women play a vital role in Birchwood. However, we need to modernise the way we operate.
“We are making changes to maintain our services and keep our prices as low as possible.
“Fewer letters are now posted every day and Royal Mail needs to organise its delivery routes to be as efficient as possible.We also deliver more larger items so we are investing in new equipment, which reduces the risk of injury to our staff from carrying heavier mail bags.”
