LETTER: Royal Mail service in Matlock is ‘abysmal’

Have your say

Dear Matlock Mercury, might I interest you in a piece about revised collection times from the post box at Matlock Green?

This is the text of a complaint submitted today to Royal Mail: I object to the new collection times from the postbox at Matlock Green. A Monday to Friday collection at 9am and a Saturday collection at 7am are outrageous! Effectively these times mean that any mail posted at reasonable times during the day will sit in the box overnight and will suffer a day’s delay. This postbox has been in use for over one hundred years and in that time there can never have been such an abysmal service.
