Stewart Stevenson MSP will visit Royal Mail’s Banff Delivery Office on Monday 5 December at 7.00am to see the festive operation in full swing on what is anticipated will be one of Royal Mail’s busiest days.

Stewart Stevenson will be welcomed at Banff Delivery Office by manager Ian Jackson and all the postmen and women who are working hard doing their bit to sort and deliver Banff’s share of the estimated Scottish Christmas postbag of 250 million items.

Stewart Stevenson MSP said: "I’m looking forward to visiting the Banff Delivery Office once again to meet the staff there and see the scale of the operation. I have visited all the Royal Mail Delivery Offices in Banff & Buchan since I was elected in 2001 and this has turned into something of an annual engagement for me.

“I never fail to be impressed by the commitment of the staff to moving the absolute mountain of mail they deal with at this time of year.

“Christmas is an exceptionally busy time for our posties and they 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.”

Royal Mail is expecting to deliver over 18.5 million letters and cards in the AB postcode area throughout this Christmas. The operation will involve more than 1,350 postal staff, backed by 140 seasonal workers, plus an extra 73 vehicles on top of the 332 strong transport fleet. On top of vehicles the area also uses 207 bicycles. There are 1010 postboxes to post Christmas cards.
