Steve turns postie for the day(March 06, 2014)
Liverpool Walton MP Steve Rotheram joined his local Postman on the streets of his constituency to experience what is involved in delivering the post.
Steve gained a unique insight into the challenges of delivering mail to every house and business in Walton, six days a week.
Randy Mclean, Royal Mail Delivery Manager, who briefed Steve before he set off on his walk said:
“We’re delighted that Steve is taking the time to experience the everyday challenges faced by our delivery postmen and women. The visit gave us the opportunity to show Steve how we are modernising and transforming the organisation to reflect the changing nature of the modern postbag.”
Steve Rotheram MP said: “Postmen and women perform an incredibly important function in our communities. I wanted to get a real understanding of the work that goes into delivering the mail on a daily basis and I’m very grateful to Randy and his team.”
