Wildlife TV presenter and conservationist Chris Packham praised our ‘excellent service’ after receiving the four letters pictured 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.
