CHRISTMAS cards galore are being sent all over the world from Gloucester – and the staff at the Post Office are busy dealing with them in the run-up to the big day.
Conservative city MP Richard Graham paid a visit to the staff at the Gloucester Post Office, in The Oxebode, yesterday.
Customers can now go to there between 8am and 8pm in the weeks before Christmas.
This is an extra 72 hours over the Christmas build-up.
Mr Graham said: "It was good to meet the 14 members of staff who are all happy to work overtime in the peak season to help customers in the run-up to Christmas.
"I was also told by the staff how discounts on stamps for people on certain categories of benefits are helping to keep down the cost of Christmas where possible."
Readers are reminded that the last posting date in time for Christmas is December 20 for first class and December 18 for second class.
