Rory pays Christmas visit to busy Postal Workers
In the lead up to Christmas, Rory paid a visit to Penrith’s postal sorting office to thank local postal workers for their hard work, in what is their busiest time of the year.
The local MP was given a tour of the office, where he learned that the branch will process up to 50,000 items per day over the Christmas period. The most significant increase is in parcels and packets, which more than double to 5000 items per day. Rory has recently sent out hundreds of his own Christmas cards across the constituency – designed locally by five year old Erin McCanny who won his Christmas card competition – many of which will be processed in the Penrith sorting office.
Speaking at the meeting, Rory said: “It’s often easy to forget the incredible complexity and hard work that goes on once we post our cards in the letterbox, confident they will reach the intended recipient. To successfully deliver 50,000 items per day is no easy task, and I thought it was only right that I pay thanks in person to our local postal workers over the Christmas period.”
