On sunday morning I ordered several books from amazon and they arrived on tuesday, but the videop tape my mum posted me on Sunday evening has not yet arrived.......am giving up hope on that one....................what to do I wonder?
I would encourage as many people as possible to take part in Research International's ongoing survey on postal services. It is based on indivuiduals both in residential and business addresses sending test items on behalf of them and noting the received items on their forms. They are looking for new panel members, e-mail them at [email protected] if interested. As a reward you get free stamps to last a lifetime and shopping vouchers (£5 a month). At least this way they get to know, how bad the service around here is.
I have started and am a "sender and receiver". Received two items this week, have to record the time and date they arrived, and then sent out 4 items this week, again recording when (time and date), where (exact post box or post office - there is a number on each box) posted etc. Mail is coming and going from all over the country but it would be excellent if we had many in SE1 and surrounds taking part as this would surely highlight the local problems. The ultimate client is Royal Mail.
As a long time lurker and sufferer of postal problems in SE1, I thought I'd update you on a conversation I've been having with Postwatch (the consumer complaints body for the Post Office).
I sent the link to these pages to my contact over there, and they're putting together a full report on SE1 problems - which is, as you might expect, quite considerable. I believe they're getting in touch with Simon Hughes as well.
They're going to update me on this as it develops, so I'll let you all know.
