Default Re: BVWS Spring Bulletin

My Partner works for Royal mail, apparently every day is like Christmas at the moment. There has been a massive increase in the amount of mail and parcels needing delivery.
He delivers to a small village near Stamford and every day his van is completely full to the roof. He goes in to work an hour earlier than normal so the sorting can be done and the van loaded in time for delivery.
There has been a fall in the amount of advertising leaflets that go " Door to Door " but this is completely swamped by the increases in parcels.
Most of his customers are highly appreciative and he is often applauded .
One bonus is that very little mail is returned to depot as most people are at home...
When he gets home he goes through "decontamination" clothes in wash - he into shower. Very trying times.
