Borders MSP Christine Grahame visited Royal Mail’s Galashiels delivery office to pass on Christmas wishes and encouragement to the postmen and women at their busiest time of year.
The SNP politician was shown round by local delivery office manager Graham Wilson and was introduced to staff.
Ms Grahame said: “It was great to meet the dedicated, hard-working Royal Mail postmen and women at Galashiels delivery office and to see first-hand just how much effort they put into delivering for people at this time of year.
“Postmen and women do such an important job at this time of year. I like to thank them for their efforts and wish them all the best over the busy festive period.”
Mr Wilson said: “Christmas is the busiest time of year for Royal Mail. Our people pull out all the stops throughout the year to ensure mail is delivered quickly, but even more so over the busy festive period.
“We are grateful that Christine Grahame MSP came along to see the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.
“Our people do a fantastic job at this time of year to ensure that friends and families stay in touch through their Christmas greetings and gifts.”
