Glenis Willmott MEP for the East Midlands, and leader of the Labour Party in Europe, will visit the Royal Mail sorting centre in Derby this coming Friday, (2nd Dec) to experience the demand put on the service over the Christmas period.
Christmas is the busiest time of year for the post office, and Mrs Willmott is keen to see what happens right at the heart of the operation.
Mrs Willmott said:
“Every year I receive Christmas cards from family and friends through the post, and have often wondered how the Royal Mail deals with the huge demand at this busy time”
“I am really looking forward to meeting the hard working staff at the sorting centre, and will hopefully learn a little more about the huge Christmas operation that goes on there”
