HAWICK posties received a visit from local Tory MSP John Lamont recently.
The St George’s Lane staff are currently working flat out in what is their busiest time of the year.
During his visit, Mr Lamont met workers who are taking on the extra deliveries over the festive period and he thanked them for their efforts.
Mr Lamont said: “Every year our posties do a great job to deal with the huge influx of mail they receive in the run-up to Christmas. It is without doubt their busiest time of the year as they have to brave the elements in order to deliver to even the most remote parts of our region.”
