As per the Update shared by MP Laura Farris, On Friday, June 9, 2023, she spoke to senior management at Royal Mail and managers on the ground in Hungerford.

MP Laura Farris assured that she made all of the people’s points clear to them. She shared the intolerable level of delay and the issues raised by postal workers who told her about the unmanageable delivery schedules they had been assigned.

The Managers of the Hungerford Postal Service told her that there had been personnel issues in Hungerford with rapid staff turnover over a short period. That meant they were understaffed for a period, resulting in some needing to receive their posts.

Further, MP Laura shared that the Hungerford Postal Service has since temporarily brought in agency workers, who helped them clear the backlog, which they say has been reduced considerably. They also told her that there are two “walks” (their term for delivery routes) behind and that staff are being rotated to address the backlogs. They are also recruiting permanent staff to replace those who they have lost.

Furthermore, MP Laura shared that Overall, they suggested that there had been an improvement in the situation and that the permanent solution was weeks, not months, away. And also urged people to keep in touch with her if they are still noticing significant issues, and if this does not improve in the next few weeks, she will take it up with them again.
