Stephen Timms today visited the East Ham Post Office Delivery Centre. Whilst there he helped some of the staff sort the thousands of letters and packages which are sent over the festive period.
Stephen was met by the Delivery Centre's manager, Jason Bryant. Jason showed Stephen around an introduced him to some of the staff - many of whom had been up early to ensure the post was delivered later that day.
Speaking after the visit, Mr Timms said "the staff at the East Ham post office are terrific. They put in a great deal of effort to ensure we all get our Christmas cards and presents on time, and they do it with festive spirit too. I'd like to thank them for all their hard work".
