Last posting times for Christmas delivery

It is never too late to write those Christmas cards.... post them soon,

There is a huge back log of parcels every year in the UK, beginning around the 7th December. This is due to the slow customs inspection service. To ensure delivery before Christmas, you really should post your package in November!!

Re: Last posting times for Christmas delivery

A few years ago my Mum sent me a parcel from Edinburgh. She sent it at the beginning of December, it arrived in the middle of February!! Proper address and post code and everything. She could have jumped in her car and driven here and back numerous times!!

Thank God, there were no sausages in there!!

This year i am going there for New Year. So, we are going to have a "late" Xmas celebration. No postage involved.

Re: Last posting times for Christmas delivery

Last day for economy parcels to Australia was Monday. Spent a frantic weekend finishing making all the things we had planned for grandparents etc.

Guess who ended up doing most of it instead of the beloved grandchild....
