Do some post boxes have more than one daily collection? I have a letter I'd like to be received before Easter, and if there is a morning collection from, say the box outside my local sub P.O. it might just make it. If it woyld just sit there til 5:30pm tomorrow evening it would have little chance so wouldn't be worth scurrying up there now!
If you ask your local sub-po when it has collected they will tell you as almost certainly the postperson calls in to collect parcels and other items from the post office at the same time. Around here there seems to be a midday and 5.15 collection from our nearest box.
Royal Mail made a decision some years ago to only list the final collection of the day on each postbox. But the number of collections is more or less the same as it used to be - in the case of the box in my road it's three a day. This saves the postman the bother of having to arrive at each box at specific times during the day - something that was fairly hit and miss anyway.
And wasn't this thread perhaps posted in the wrong forum? Maybe should have been in Postman's Corner - sorry Speaker's Corner.
