I've had post this week on Monday, Friday and Saturday. But nowhere as many Christmas cards as usual.

We had a delivery yesterday, which was Sunday!?!

A banner day already - took in a package for our upstairs neighbour & whilst dropping it off, noticed a missed delivery slip that never made it to us (we have a separate front door which hasn’t caused any problems with delivery until the change in posties). Then, on the way to pick up the 12 via Goodrich Road, noticed some posties sorting their van out by causally throwing things on the pavement. Now in the queue at the sorting office - at least 20 ish people behind me and there’s only 30 mins until it closes sad smiley

As well as the stream of missing post / parcels and long queues at Highshore Road, has anyone else had issues with debit and credit cards not arriving as expected? or subsequent issues with fraudulent activity on cards that never arrived?

I'm wondering is it potentially a police issue, rather than just a one-off that has impacted us.

No, but on Saturday I received an appointment letter for a hospital appointment that it has taken me YEARS to get. The postal date was the 15th February, the appointment was for the 28th February. I received it on the 2nd March.

Because I missed the appointment, the hospital have now discharged me. So frustrated that this nonsense is still going on after months, and there appears to be no accountability whatsoever. I will of course be complaining, and copying in Helen Hayes, but it seems unlikely to make any difference.

Strangely my magazine subscription has been arriving a day early for the last three weeks.

Incidentally when I was using the laundrette off Pellatt Road recently, a Royal Mail van pulled up, with a postal worker and two agency workers delivering post in the surrounding area.

I can only assume that certain parts of the SE22 postcode are getting priority for post now as it appears the post is normal for me at least again.

In the last few weeks I have received several items of mail for addresses with the same house number as mine but completely different roads (including two cafes, named as part of the address. Surely it should be obvious to anybody that my house is not a cafe).

I have also got mail for other house numbers in my own road, one of which was a bank statement which I opened by mistake (I resisted the temptation to look at it big grin)

Yesterday I got a catalogue for somebody with the same house number but different roads.

When the post came today, I gave it to the postie. His response "I wasn't working yesterday."

Then I looked at today's post. It included a letter clearly marked for the house next door.

So I called him back and gave that back to him as well. His response "Well it's only for next door" (meaning, you could have put that through their letter box yourself, couldn't you?)

Er, yes I could, but I'm bloody sick of delivering other people's post.

Where do they get these people from?

What really worries me is where my own mail is going. Apart from things I know have definitely gone missing, It's the things I don't know about sad smiley

Posted by ed_pete March 13, 03:37PM

I've had exactly the same - post for next door and post for a house with same number in a different street. Poor quality service. And as you say what's happening to your own post ?

messageRe: Missing post since sorting office moved to peckham
Posted by Sue March 13, 04:41PM

It's got to the point where I just expect things not to arrive.

messageRe: Missing post since sorting office moved to peckham

I emailed Craig Wallace ( ) with my complaint, and got no response whatsoever (I copied in Helen Hayes too). Anyone had more recent responses or used a different email address for them?

messageRe: Missing post since sorting office moved to peckham
Posted by rjw March 13, 05:11PM

Yep, here too, post for addresses that are not in our road. Including personal, private correspondence.
I did complain to Craig Wallace a few months ago when the move first took place and received a reply, but not from him.

messageRe: Missing post since sorting office moved to peckham
Posted by Penguin68 March 13, 05:38PM

Craig Wallace (or his office) has never responded to me (I've written twice), although the PO Chairman's office did for my first complaint (not just a form letter) and Helen Hayes has been very responsive. However I have to say that in the last few weeks my post is more clearly 'normal' (occasional glitches apart - they still haven't worked out how to rota for days off) and I am genuinely worried how they will cope when the proper holiday season comes round again.

Did the hospital rearrange your appointment, under the circumstances?

I was so sorry to read your post above. I can't begin to imagine how you must have felt.

ETA: I wonder if they have changed their systems, as I have an urgent hospital appointment next week and have had two separate phone calls reminding me about it, one automated and from an actual person.

I now wonder whether this is in case people haven't received a letter from the hospital and whether this is now a common occurrence.

Sue, I get letters, texts as well as the automated phone call. I once had a text about an appointment I knew nothing about!

messageRe: Missing post since sorting office moved to peckham
Posted by katanita March 13, 08:35PM

(I had to ring around the hospital and absolutely grovel to the department secretary but I did get an appointment back, thanks, it helped that I was able to point to news stories about the poor service from Royal Mail in this area! Some hospital departments do a text message or call, some don't).

Well, I was fully expecting my SIM card to go AWOL, but to my great surprise it arrived today having been posted first class yesterday.

So, credit where it's due, Royal Mail managed to deliver one item on time to the correct address smiling smiley

I had a postal delivery today. The postie then came back and stuck another bit of post through my letter box. It was for my neighbour!

The carbon footprint for the Peckham sorting office must be huge since the ED postal workers joined. Saw a postie park in Shawbury Road, then 10 mins later drive up to Pellatt Road to deliver mail.

messageRe: Missing post since sorting office moved to peckham

Today I received a letter withthe correct number but not the right road. I called the postie back and all he said was’where’s that road then.’ He was standing in it so he then said: ‘I don’t know why it’s n my pile cos thatroad is not on my walk.’

It's a shambles, isn't it?

messageRe: Missing post since sorting office moved to peckham
Posted by Sue March 21, 05:40PM

Been out most of the day.

Came back to find a packet just left on my doorstep. Luckily it was still there.

About five minutes ago a "signed for", letter was put through my door. I have no idea who signed for it (obviously not me, nor anybody at this address), nor who put it through my door.

Ironically, it was a card and a small gift from a friend who had sent it tracked after I told her of all the problems we were having with our mail deliveries .......

ETA: Ooops, just seen there was a text from my neighbour before I posted this, to say she had signed for it! Thanks, neighbour!

Possibly delivered to a neighbour in your absence and then posted to you by them?

messageRe: Missing post since sorting office moved to peckham

My mail delivered today with one of the letters (a hospital appointment) left sticking out the letterbox.
Keeps happening. Have spoken to the post(man) 3 times now. Could not give a S**te

Yep, you are right, and if I had checked my texts I would have seen that was what had happened! DUH!

Had a 1st class small parcel delivered to Overhill Road this morning, 11 days after it was posted (with proof-of-postage) and I'd been trying to find out it's location for last few days. Amazing that no-one is still not accountable, and it's been going on for 5 months?

Avoid using Royal Mail.

Had an ebay order delivered today ... Well, the jiffy bag at least - the envelope had been cut open and the contents stolen. Peckham Sorting Office perchance?

messageRe: Missing post since sorting office moved to peckham
Posted by Sue March 25, 09:56PM

Postie knocked today to deliver a package. I was expecting one, so I signed for it.

Belatedly checked the address. It was for Lucas Bakery. Same house number, different road.

Had a conversation with postie. Ended amicably when he agreed I might have good reason to suspect my "missing" post might have been misdelivered.

Shortly afterwards I went out. Passed postie taking a picture of some shelving outside a house in my street (but inside their boundary wall).

He said to me something along the lines of "If they don't want that, I'm having it"

So if you're in the North Cross Road area and your shelves have gone missing, ask your postie ....

Posted by singalto March 25, 11:19PM

I get post with the right number but for other roads. I also get post for the right road but not the right number. Today the postie also stuck 6 Hillary blinds and 6 Domino pizza leaflets through my door with post which was actually for me!
