We are currently experiencing delays to our UK based services due to snow in some areas. The snow is currently affecting our local Royal Mail collections so there is likely to be some delay in letters leaving the Kent area. This will affect all services including Special Delivery for which we regret we can currently not guarantee a next day service. Royal Mail have also issued a service update regarding mail deliveries in other areas which are likely to be subject to delays. These include South West, South Wales, Mid Wales, the Midlands, parts of Northern of England and Anglia. The update in full is below:
Heavy snow has affected services in many parts of the South West, South Wales, Mid Wales, the Midlands, parts of Northern of England and Anglia; especially in the more rural areas and over higher ground.
There is likely to be some impact on deliveries and collections today in a number of postcode areas. The snow is expected to move east throughout the day.
Particularly affected this morning are many parts of South and Mid Wales, including almost all parts of the CF & NP postcode areas and many parts of the SA area.
We will be out attempting deliveries and collections in as many areas as possible, but only where it's safe and access is possible. We may not be able to collect your mail today if you are located in an area affected by the severe weather. We'd like to apologise to all customers whose mail services are currently being disrupted by the severe weather conditions.
During this time PC2Paper will process all mail as usual and pass it to the postal service as soon as the services are working normally again. We apologise for any delays that may be experienced.
