Here's a letter of thanks to post workers

As a committed letter-writer for years, particularly because I have often been a distance from family and friends, I have always considered The Royal Mail sacrosanct.

I happily drop my letters into the post box with total trust that they will arrive at their destination. Over the years I have posted dozens of parcels which also have all been successfully delivered.

After recent criticism of the Royal Mail I would just like to say thanks to the postmen.

They regularly tramp through all kinds of weather to deliver all kinds of envelopes though all kinds of letterboxes and, of course, we must not forget those who deliver the parcels in their little red vans. I simply hope that in this inclement weather the 'foot patrol' are not still expected to walk at that ridiculous four miles an hour!

Wishing all our loyal postmen a Happy New Year.
