STROUD'S MP visited town posties at their busiest time of the year.

Neil Carmichael MP called in at Royal Mail's Stroud delivery office to pass on best Christmas wishes and encouragement to the postmen and women.

He was shown round the office and introduced to staff.

"It was great to meet the hard-working Royal Mail postmen and women at Stroud delivery office and to see at first hand just how much effort they put into delivering for people at this time of year," said Mr Carmichael. 

"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."

Andy Yarworth, Royal Mail Delivery Office Manager at Stroud said: "Christmas is the busiest time of year for Royal Mail. Our people really do 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 Neil Carmichael MP came along to sees the hard work that goes on behind the scenes."

Andy added: "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.  And as usual, we'd like to remind our customers to post early so that friends and family have longer to enjoy their Christmas greetings!"

The recommended last posting dates for mail are:

• Thursday 20 December for 1st Class items

• Tuesday 18 December for 2nd Class items

• Saturday 22 December for Special Delivery items

    Well that was inconsiderate of him I can understand if you were impolite which no doubt you were not. I think with MPs sometimes you need to vote for the man not the party? I have heard good things about David Drew for instance although have no first hand dealings with him. I can only speak as I find and that is although I do not agree with Mr Graham on a fair few issues he always takes the time and trouble to respond to me and explain his reasoning etc. I send him a list of issues last night which I thought have greater priority than say getting wound up over "Gay Marriage" He took the trouble to reply and point out some very positive progress the government has made in trying to re balance the economy. It is his first stint as an MP and agree or not with him I do believe he is trying hard to turn things around.

    I quite simly asked Mr Charmichael to find out why when I was in the north of England the fuel prices were on average 5-8p cheaper per litre and he did not reply to me...

    I think it is his job to go round and visit constituents? I have received an email back tonight at 23.20 hours from my MP Richard Graham. Fair played to him as it was a huge moan!! Perhaps the Stroud one is not as hard working?

    Maybe the Stroud MP should actually be doing some work, like responding to emails that were sent to him 6 months ago...
