STAFF AT ONE OF Moray’s five Royal Mail sorting offices were visited by local MP Douglas Ross as they entered the final stages of their busiest period of the year.

Final Christmas deliveries will be made on Saturday and Mr Ross wished to thank staff for the work they have been doing not just in the hectic run to Christmas but throughout the year.

He said: “I was delighted to meet with staff at the Royal Mail sorting office in Forres and thank them on behalf of everyone in the town for their efforts all year round, but particularly in the busy run up to Christmas.

“Of course, I extend these thanks to those working at the other Moray sorting offices at Buckie, Keith and Elgin for all their hard work and dedication in getting our Christmas post to us.

“As well as dealing with all the usual post the staff had a huge volume of Christmas cards and packages to get sorted and delivered, which I imagine isn’t always a straightforward process if addresses are difficult to read or postcodes are missing, making them difficult to sort automatically.

“We should also spare a thought for our posties at this time of year, whose rounds take longer to complete given the volume of mail. But the show must go on and they are out in all weathers which has been especially testy and tricky for them recently with the icy conditions.”
