27th November 1972 a 16yr old boy started work with Royal Mail. 51 yrs 4ish months later he is about to got out on his last delivery.
I have given him all the cards dropped off at the South DO over this last week. It was lovely to catch up with some of my old customers as well.
He was overwhelmed by your kindness and is quite emotional this morning.
There is to be a Farewell Drinkies at Swany’s on Ratcliffe Terrace from about 2pm should anyone wish to pop along. Big C (as he is known in the office) maybe late, as like myself he does like to have a wee natter with his customers and I’m sure many will try to catch him to say goodbye.
I’m a wee tad rubbish at technology, but I will get my husband later on to help me post a couple of photos from the office which were taken this morning.
As for you new postie, for the time being it will be just covered temporarily. With time, and a bit of internal politics you will get a full time replacement.
