Having completed 43 years’ service, Malcolm Ray is hanging up his crash helmet and bicycle clips for a well-earned retirement.
Malcolm started work at Jersey Post in 1969, shortly after the States of Jersey took responsibility for local mail. In those days, all mail was processed at Broad Street, moving a few years later in 1971 to the Mont Pinel processing centre, and then down to Rue des Pres in 1996. For 25 of his 43 years at Jersey Post, Malcolm has been delivering to the residents of St Clement who will no doubt miss his cheerful demeanour.
Malcolm said, “Many things have changed over the years, but one thing that I have always enjoyed is meeting customers and often being able to bring them good news in the form of an important letter or greetings card. Jersey Post has been such a wonderful place to work and my colleagues have been a big part of this – their camaraderie and good spirits are things I’m really going to miss.”
Andy Jehan, Director of Postal Operations, said “Although our 375 employees can count almost 3,500 years’ experience between them, replacing our longest serving colleague is going to be a pretty tall order. Malcolm has been a model employee throughout his career with the postal service; we wish him all the very best for a long and happy retirement.”
Malcolm plans to devote even more of his time to community work, having been actively involved with local football for many years.
