Earlier last collections from Theale post boxes proposed

Royal Mail have pasted notices on pillar boxes in Theale saying that they intend to make last post collections earlier. For example, the last collection from the one outside the post office in Theale high Street would be at 5pm and the last one from the one in The Green would be at 4pm. I suspect that the same will be true of other post boxes in Theale. The changes are scheduled to take place from 16th June 2014.

The notice gives the reason as "in order to provide you with the best possible, sustainable service...", which seems to be rather cynical!

I think that the change will make things difficult for the many businesses in Theale, as well as for residents.

If you want to object to the changes then please call Royal Mail Customer services on 08457 740 740.
