Right across the nation, customers have been conveying their thanks to our people for continuing to deliver their post

Whether it’s households sellotaping thank you cards and rainbow pictures to their front windows, or grannies giving colleagues on delivery their baking masterpieces and homemade jelly, our customers are doing what they can to bring our people a spot of cheer in these trying times.

Unsurprisingly, customers have also been flooding our Twitter feed with the below examples, voicing their appreciation for everything we are doing to help keep the country running.
