messageHas Highshore rd sorting office improved?

I came home to find a dreaded ‘missed delivery’ card from Royal Mail. Is there still a long queue at Highshore rd these days?

I was there at about 1.30 and only 2 others in the queue- although it was getting longer as I left

Thanks, Carrie.

Not as of last weekend - a queue to the top of the ramp at 1pm, and when finally served at 1.45 it was still as long. Someone behind the counter said to a colleague “well we shut at 2, so we’ll just have to shut the door”.

As I’m in bed ill , I have booked a redelivery. The earliest available day for that is Saturday. Should I hold my breath?

I've booked four redeliveries in the last couple of weeks and they've all come on the promised day. Might just be lucky though!

Rendellharris, that gives me hope. The parcel delivery driver from Sylvester rd knew where to leave parcels. I still haven’t quite understood why our posties have been redeployed rather than continuing their original walks but what do I know?

I had a parcel recently and it was the same delivery driver that's been coming for at least 10 years
Haven't seen any of the original postmen though- and some of them had been delivering to my house for at least 15 years

The original walks were all optimised to start and finish at Sylvester Road (obviously) - the new walks are in pairs (so two posties can travel together in one van with their mail from Peckham) - and no longer need to be optimised to start and return to the sorting office on foot. Hence they have changed. I am hoping that the delivery staff will stabilise eventually, but it seems that there are still too many vacancies for permanent routes to be stuck to, days are missed out on walks so that everyone can get a few deliveries in the week. I've yet to receive a credit card bill which should have been sent on the 9th. Luckily I have an ap so I have discovered what the bill is and can pay it in time, otherwise I would have hit interest city. Still a mess.

Yesterday I had all my neighbour's post delivered to me.

Today I got a letter for a different road (same number as mine). When I returned it to the postie, he said "The machine does it".

Do they not look at what they are putting through the letter box???

What worries me is where some of my post may be ending up.

I assumed it was somewhere in the black hole which appears to be the mail system round here at the moment, but now I'm thinking .... what if it's being delivered to empty houses? Or houses with people who can't be bothered to repost wrongly delivered items?

I'm still waiting for a gift card which was sent out in October (it's been cancelled and I've received the replacement, but where is the original?)

It's all very well if you know something has been posted to you and you haven't received it, but what about the things you aren't expecting?

Credit where it's due.

I had a dreaded red card on Thursday and ordered a redelivery for today.

It arrived around 9.30 am! Amazing!!

I am delighted to say that my parcel arrived today so thank you, RM.
