Jo Swinson MP for East Dunbartonshire visited the Royal Mail sorting office in Bishopbriggs today to see first-hand the staff's hard work during the busy festive period.
Jo toured the sorting office with Delivery Manager Craig Brown, who introduced her to the office's team.
The sorting office in Bishopbriggs sort around 36,000 items of mail every day during the Christmas holidays, before handing them over to local postmen and women for deliveries.
Commenting, Jo Swinson said:
"It was lovely to meet the Royal Mail staff at the sorting office in Bishopbriggs today.
"They deal with a high volume of post at this time of year and thanks to their extra efforts we get our cards and presents safely and in time for Christmas.
"I'd like to thank all local area postmen and women for the fantastic job that they do, and wish them the very best for Christmas and the New Year."
Craig Brown, Royal Mail Delivery Office Manager at Bishopbriggs said:
"Christmas is the busiest time of year for Royal Mail. Our people 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. We are grateful that Ms Swinson MP came along to see the hard work that goes on behind the scenes."
"Our people do a fantastic job at this time of year to ensure that friends and families stay in touch through their Christmas greetings and gifts. And as usual, we'd like to remind our customers to post early so that friends and family have longer to enjoy their Christmas greetings!"
