Please see the following update below from Royal Mail, more information can be found on their website at the following link https://personal.help.royalmail.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/12556/~/service-update?iid=PROMO_H1_SERVICEUPDATES

Thursday 1 March 2018

The severe weather conditions affecting the country are continuing to disrupt Royal Mail's services today.

Our mails distribution network was disrupted by the wintry conditions last night and this has adversely affected on the movement of mail around the country, and hence the availability of mail for delivery today in many parts.

We'll be out delivering and collecting mail today, but only in areas where access is possible and it's safe for our people to perform them.
We'll keep these pages updated with as much information about services as possible.

We're doing all we can to maintain services at a near-normal level and would like to apologise to customers whose mail deliveries and collections have been affected by the severe weather conditions.

Special Delivery Guarantee Suspended

We're sorry that we are currently unable to guarantee next day delivery of Special Delivery items posted from Thursday 1 March 2018. We continue to accept and prioritise the delivery of Special Delivery items at this time and will reinstate the delivery guarantee as soon as we are confident we can meet this service promise for all customers. We're really sorry for the inconvenience caused.

We have received several queries by concerned customers regarding the Heartbleed vulnerability that has recently been announced in the press.

The vulnerability affects sites that are not patched, who make use of a piece of software called OpenSSL.

We can assure you we are not affected by this vulnerability because:

  • We do not use OpenSSL
  • We have already scanned ourselves for the vulnerability and we have been found not to have it.
  • We are regularly scanned for such vulnerabilities by Trustwave to ensure we conform to industry standards for handling credit cards on line.

We would also like to point out that some of the sites that try to detect these vulnerabilities have become overloaded because so many people are checking them. A few are giving time-out messages which people are mistaking for a vulnerability.

The weather conditions are currently affecting the Royal Mail service which collects from businesses and post boxes. Currently the collections vans are unable to come out to collect mail so there will be some delay in it entering the postal system. We are still processing as normal, but have removed any tracked services until the weather conditions improve. Customers should expect delivery to take longer until further notice.

We will be reviewing this situation on a daily basis and hope to have the services back as normal as soon as the weather improves.

As a result we are unable to guarantee Special Delivery and Recorded Delivery services at this time and have temporarily removed them from the website. We will restore these services as soon as the Royal Mail service is back to normal in our local area.

Customers should be aware that any mail sent from Friday 18th of January is subject to delays. This includes any mail posted by Special Delivery and Recorded Delivery which is likely to take longer than usual. Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee that Royal Mail will deliver any Special Delivery items on the next working day at this time. Customers should allow extra time for delivery of all UK mail until weather conditions start to improve. We apologise for any inconvenience caused, unfortunately these delays are due to factors that are beyond our control.

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.

Royal Mail have made some amendments to their terms and conditions to cover mail sent during the Olympic Games. this is due to some additional transport and travel restrictions that are in place during the games. During this time any Special Delivery items should still arrive on the next working day, however, they are not guaranteed by 1pm in certain areas for the duration of the games. Postcodes affected are E, EC, N, NW, SE, SW, W and WC. Special Delivery items for the rest of the UK remain unaffected and are still guaranteed for next day delivery by 1pm as normal.

Customers living in London may also receive their post earlier or later in the day, in order to work around transport restrictions. There may also be some delays to services in local areas as the Olympic torch relay passes through them. You can check what's happening every day on the Royal Mail website at the following link.

PC2Paper relies on the good services that Royal Mail provide and an essential part of this is our business collection. With the recent bad weather, however, our local area has been completely cut off. 15 inches of snow have meant no Royal Mail collections for three days causing a huge backlog of mail and with a fourth day of no collections we decided it was time to take drastic action to get the mail to the sorting office. With no post offices open and no way of driving in the dreadful conditions our dedicated staff decided the only way to get the mail out was to walk to the sorting office. We donned our boots, gloves and hats and struggled out each with several sacks of mail slung over each shoulder. After a gruelling 4 mile walk through knee deep snow and freezing conditions the mail was finally passed to the nearest sorting office and we are pleased to say we have now managed to clear the backlog. We are hoping that weather conditions will improve over the next few days and that service will soon return to normal but feel a big thanks is in order to our staff who went the extra mile.

A further two postal strikes look likely to ahead causing further delays to mail sent within the UK. The strikes will go ahead on Friday the 6th and Monday the 9th of November. Rather than continuing the practice of rolling strikes where different staff strike on different days the next wave of strikes will see all workers walking out. If the strikes go ahead there will be no mail collections or deliveries on these days. This will mean that mail sent via PC2Paper after 4pm on Thursday the 5th of November will not enter the postal system until the service returns to normal on Tuesday the 10th of November. Customers should also expect delays to mail after this date as Royal Mail work to clear the backlog caused by the strikes action. Our other printing stations remain unaffected.

Royal Mail workers have voted for national strike action in a long running dispute over jobs and pay. Over 76 per cent of workers balloted voted for the action which will mean a series of national strikes.

Friday the 21st of March and Monday 24th of March are public holidays in the UK. This means there is no mail delivery or collections on these days. Any letters sent via PC2Paper customers after close of business (5pm) on Thursday the 20th of March will not be processed until we reopen on Tuesday 25th March. Customers will still be able to send letters as normal but they will remain in the system as pending until the next working day.

Customers should also be aware that the public holidays may mean any letters sent on Thursday the 20th the March are not received until the middle of the following week. This is due to the fact that Royal Mail delivery staff do not work on public holidays, so although PC2Paper will have processed and sent your letter it may remain in the postal system over the long weekend.

The show will feature Jean-Christophe Novelli who will give three cookery demonstrations as well as some other well know chefs. The following press release has been issued giving details about the show. Tickets are free is you register before hand or £8 on the day.

Press Release
Jean-Christophe Novelli, Britain's favourite French Chef, will be one of the star attractions at The France Show 2008, which runs at London's Olympia from 18-20 January.

He will be conducting three live cookery demonstrations each day at the show with his "mobile" Novelli Academy Cookery School, revealing the secrets that have made him one of the most celebrated Chefs in Britain.

The Novelli master classes will be among the main highlights of an already mouth-watering line-up for the Olympia show, which is expected to attract30,000 visitors. It is being organised by Archant Life, publisher of the UK's three leading French lifestyle magazines - France, Living France and French Property News.

Miller Hogg, Regional Managing Director of Archant Life France, said: "We have had a wonderful response to the France Show so far from the public andare extremely excited about working with one of the world's greatest Chefs. For anyone with a love of French food, watching Jean-Christophe Novelli inaction is a must."

Jean-Christophe, who started work at the age of 14 as a baker in his hometown of Arras came to Britain in 1984. He is a Michelin and 5AA Rosette award winning Chef, whose attributes include AA Chef's Chef of the Year, European Chef of the Year finalist representing Great Britain and the prestigious Egon Ronay Desert of the Year. He won Restaurant of the Year on numerous occasions and many other awards for culinary excellence.

In 2005 Jean-Christophe established the Novelli Academy, which was voted among the 'Top 25 Cookery Schools in the World' within three months and offers a diverse range of courses to suit aspiring cooks of all levels. A year ago he branched out again to open his first gastro pub, 'A Touch of Novelli' at The White Horse in Harpenden.

During 2007 Jean-Christophe launched Novelli Wines - "I have always been as passionate about wine as I am about food. As a chef, I know that if you serve the right wine with the right food you can turn a good meal into a truly great one. There is a wealth of small producers in France creating wonderful, and affordable, wines. The France Show is all about sharing and appreciating everything that France can offer."

Jean-Christophe's new recipe book "Everyday Novelli" will be available from1 February 2008, from Headline Publishing, and advance copies can be ordered at the show.

The Novelli Food Theatre will be one of the main attractions at the France Show offering demonstrations of cookery to suit all palates. There will be six cookery demonstrations each day, three by Novelli, two by his protégé, Steven Kitchen and one by Franck Raymond, the head Chef of London's oldest French restaurant, Mon Plaisir.

Other highlights of the France Show 2008 include a huge property zone, London's largest French market and an extensive holiday travel fair, as well as insights into French culture, language and lifestyle.

Visitors who pre-register can obtain free tickets or else pay £8 at the door on the day. For your free tickets and further information about the France Show, visit the official website at www.thefranceshow.com
