There may be delays in RM’s delivery due to their planned strikes this month. Royal Mail, which is facing six days of strikes running up until Christmas Eve, has told the public to send their cards and presents even earlier than usual if they want them to arrive in time for Christmas.
The final date for regular second class deliveries is now 12 December while for first class it is 16 December. The final posting date of any kind before Christmas is Special Delivery Guaranteed on 21 December.
