Royal Mail Christmas Posting Dates 2015!
6th November 2015
... Comments

Season’s greetings to everyone are best delivered by a cheery card, for many a gift too, and for those living far and wide it is time to prepare to get them there on time.

This year the Post Office are marking the season with some very nice special postage stamps, another good reason to make a start before the stamp collectors grab them all. It is lovely to see seasonal stamps on letters and cards; it adds to the specialness of the forthcoming festivities.

Time seems to pass quite quickly, we are already well into November, so we want to give everyone a friendly nudge to Post Early for Christmas.
