Today marks the fourth National Postal Workers Day, when the nation celebrates the hard work and dedication of the hundreds of thousands of women and men who collect, sort and deliver our letters, and parcels to every address in the country.
14 December is traditionally one of the busiest days of the year for postal workers, with tens of millions of items in the system. To mark the day, Michael is supporting the Communication Workers Union in asking the public to think of their postmen and women and to show their appreciation for the hard work they carry out and the vital service they perform in delivering the post.
Michael visited Royal Mail's Wombwell Delivery Office on Friday 11 December to personally thank postal workers for thier hard work during the festve season. Welcomed to the office by Delivery Office Manager Teresa Courtney, Michael saw for himself how the postal workers sort and deliver the post at their busiest time of year.

"Today's event celebrates the hard work of postal workers and acknowledges the vital role they play in our local communities. My visit to the Wombwell Delivery Office on Friday gave me an insight into how hard our postal workers work during the year and it's great that National Postal Workers Day gives us all an opportunity to give them the thanks, recognition and rewards they deserve."
