Bolton West MP Chris Green experienced what is involved in delivering the post when he joined a local postie on a delivery round in Horwich.
The MP was invited by Royal Mail to spend the day in the shoes of a postie to see the lengths they go to to deliver the post. It gave him a unique insight into the challenges of delivering mail to every house and business in Bolton West, six days a week.
Chris commented: “Being a postie for the day and seeing the work that goes on behind the scenes was very insightful.
“It was amazing to see what the men and women who deliver our post go through on a daily basis, delivering mail six days a week in all weather conditions and with no complaints.
“They not only deliver the mail, but also play an important part in local communities and I want to thank all the Royal Mail postmen and women across Bolton West for their hard work.”
