During his visit, Mr Mitchell saw first-hand the operation of delivering Christmas post and passed on season’s greetings to the hardworking staff.

Mr Mitchell was shown around the office by delivery office manager Glenn Johnson and was introduced to the postmen and women, who are pulling out all the stops to sort and deliver mail in the Horsham area over the Christmas period.

The Festive Season is Royal Mail’s busiest period, as millions of people shop online for gifts and send Christmas cards and parcels.

Mr Mitchell said: “At no other time is the hard work and dedication of postmen and women clearer than during the festive period.

“I thank them for the extraordinary lengths they go to ensure Christmas cards and presents are delivered to loved ones on time, and for all they do year-round.”

Mr Johnson said: “It was a pleasure to show Councillor Mitchell our Christmas operation and to hear his kind words of encouragement and support.

“We are extremely proud of our postmen and women for all their hard work during the Festive Season and for continuing our proud history of delivering Christmas mail.”

The last recommended posting dates for Christmas are:

Second Class – Tuesday 20 December 2016

First Class – Wednesday 21 December 2016

Special Delivery – Thursday 22 December 2016.
