The MP for Angus was in Arbroath last week to show his support for the postmen and women at their busiest time of year.

On Friday Mike Weir was given a tour of the delivery office on Hill Street by delivery office manager Ryan Taylor who introduced him to the team working hard to sort and deliver cards and parcels in the Arbroath area in the run-up to Christmas.

Mr Weir said: “It was great to meet the dedicated, hard-working Royal Mail postmen and women at Arbroath 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.”

Mr Taylor 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 Mike Weir MP came along to see the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.”

He continued: “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!”
