Post Box Update

Comments Off on Post Box Update

By Kath Hudson, update as of 14th February:

• 17 known individual complaints to Royal Mail

• 17 survey responses (electronic)

• 10 survey responses (paper)

Keep those survey responses coming  – if your household used the post box near the church even occasionally I want to hear from you now!  The more replies the bigger the impact.

The survey link is https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/GMLWXQF

Tell friends and neighbours who may still be unaware of the survey.  Contact me for copies of the paper version on k.hudson@stinchcombepc.co.uk or 01453 542132.

It’s good to see our District Councillors rallying round – Ken Tucker assisting with the map analysis and Catherine Braun contacting Royal Mail on our behalf.

Thanks to Andy Hamilton and Ken, we are building a strong case based on post box coverage.  Royal Mail aims for 98% of delivery points within ½ mile (805 metres) of their nearest post box.  With the loss of a post box, our parish as a whole has slipped further below this.  Focussing on the specific area now served by the post box on The Street, coverage is now well below 90%.

By combining the coverage statistics with the survey results, we can hit Royal Mail with a community-wide mega-complaint! 

 I aim to submit this by the end of February, so if you want to be part of it, don’t delay.
