Some of my constituents have been in touch to tell me that their postal deliveries have been very unpredictable over the past few months.
As a consequence, I wrote to Royal Mail back in June to share my constituents' concerns. I was told that the Banbury Delivery Office had faced resourcing issues because of a higher than normal absence for the time of year. At the time Royal Mail said that postal deliveries were taking place on a rotational basis to minimise disruption, although they hoped to be able to return to a six day a week service soon.
Given that the situation does not seem to be improving, I plan to write again to Royal Mail to find out what more can be done. I'd love to hear from any of my constituents who have been experiencing patchy or unpredictable postal deliveries over the past few weeks. It will help me get a better picture of whether this is a Banbury-wide issue or isolated to specific areas of the town or villages.
Please do get in touch with me via firstname.lastname@example.org.
