Last Posting Dates for Christmas

| November 9, 2012 | 0 Comments

With Christmas barely six weeks away, Jersey Post is reminding Islanders to post Christmas cards and gifts as early as possible to ensure that Christmas cards and gifts arrive on time.

In spite of the digital revolution in communications, when it comes to the season of goodwill, many Islanders still prefer the traditional method of relying on the postal services for sending seasonal greetings to family and friends in the Island, the UK and overseas, making the coming weeks the busiest of the year at Jersey Post.

Andy Jehan, Director of Postal Operations, said Jersey Post is always delighted to be playing such an important community role at this special time of the year for Island families.

‘We want to make sure that all items sent from Jersey, to Jersey or to destinations all over the world  arrive in time for people to celebrate Christmas knowing that their relations and friends in the Island are thinking of them’ he said.

To assist customers, Jersey Post will be distributing a handy Christmas posting guide to all households from Monday 12 November. This guide contains information on last posting dates, opening times and where to go for more information on postage at Christmas. A summary of the information is included below:
