The negative attitude of Royal Mail senior management

April 21, 2020 1:39 PM

Worthen with Shelve and Chirbury with Brompton Parishes are working together to make sure we can all support our residents during this difficult time. We approached or local Posties who were all willing to distribute our information leaflet (attached above).They asked their local team leaders and all was fine.

Their bosses however said NO! They want us to use the money we are using for food banks and other support to pay them! This was taken up for us by the former High Sherriff, David Stacey(local) and the Lord Lieutenant, Anna Turner. The answer was still no.

With so many other organisations(all the big supermarkets, Calor, the banks and the Post Office etc..) helping communities out in so many different ways, the Royal Mail have done itself no favours with our team of local volunteers. This was not something that would have cost them anything. We merely wanted them to take to addresses they were already going too!

Our area would still value this service connecting our isolated communities with our Care in the Community Group.

In contrast I would like to pay tribute to our local posties who are doing a terrific job in very difficult circumstances.
