LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Postal workers are heroes

AFTER reading the letters section I thought I just had to write as they were mostly downcast to say the least.

Surely in this terrible time of uncertainty we should try to be more optimistic in our thoughts and actions.

We have praised our wonderful NHS and rightly so, but it is time to mention the other key workers who have stood proud throughout this Covid pandemic. The police, fire service, council workers, supermarket staff, shop assistants etc. But most of all, don’t forget your postal workers.

They deliver to your home daily letters and now more and more packages without any thanks at all.

I have heard of several cases where they have been abused, even had people coiling back in repulsion when the postman/woman knocks at their doors as if they are delivering Covid-infected letters or packages.

Some just snatch their post and slam the door in their faces. How rude is that?

Postal workers deliver regardless of the weather conditions, even heavy rainfall, snow etc and some people even have the audacity to moan their post is wet.

So the next time you see your postal worker, remember they also have families fearing their loved ones may catch this terrible virus, but they have a job to do and they don’t have the option to work from home.

This is the season of goodwill, so let’s all thank our key workers for the jobs they do so we can continue to receive the service they provide. After all, good manners cost nothing.
