Wildlife TV presenter and conservationist Chris Packham praised our ‘excellent service’ after receiving a number of letters that, to put it mildly, weren’t exactly addressed in the correct manner!

His initial tweet then prompted a flurry of follow-up tweets from customers praising our people, some of which are included below.

  • @ChrisGPackham – I got home last night to these three letters and feel compelled to compliment the excellent service provided by @RoyalMail. . . and as this Icelandic example shows . . . ‘snail mail’ still has a monopoly on romance! Top work posties!
  • @secretsurfer – Fab service by my postie Roy in Exeter - he always goes the extra mile to get my post to me.
  • @Base52GC – We still use @RoyalMail for their great service.

  • @beta_gershimon – I used to work at Royal Mail and yeah, they'd go above and beyond to get mail delivered.
  • @MadPunyGoddess – That's brilliant. Our postman, Ivan is like Sherlock Holmes. He manages to sort out all sorts of vague addresses. He's a legend.
