No card from me right now, but I just wanted to swing by with an update on the postal situation in my parents' village. Some of you may remember that a few months ago, I posted a plea for signatures on a petition, as the Royal mail closed the Ballater sorting office and posties were forced to sort the mail out in the open in a public car park.
Many thanks to all of you that signed the petition. Several petitions (there's a lot of elderly folk in Ballater who aren't online, so there was even a paper one, lol) were taken to the local councillors, and they took action and had stern words with the royal mail. The posties now once again have a roof over their heads while sorting the mail! They have access to facilities, the location in far more secure than the car park, and the letters/cards and parcels are no longer getting soaked.
Thank you all. I (and the residents of Ballater) really appreciate your help!
Have a fantabulous day!
