    Anyone else not getting mail due to snow?

    The last day we had our mail was on saturday and before then we went most of the week without getting any. When i spoke to the postman on Saturday, he said his bosses would not llow him to deliver in the deep snow.

    Now i find it hard to believe that everyone else around here is managing to get to work and i have seen people delivering newspapers and the milk man make his deliveries, so im annoyed that mail that i relly need is unlikely to get here before Christmas.

    Anyone know if i can collect my mail myself and how i go about doing this. Iv googled numbers and looked on the royal mail site, but dont know if they allow this.

    ring your local sorting office to check they are letting people collect, ours is I went last night and again this morning, still not got everything that im waiting on, but after lunch the postman started delivering the parcels where i am

    you will need to take photo id and proof of address

    Didn't get any today, depends how bad it is.

    Still waiting on a few parcels but none are for christmas purposes.

    None here again, last post here was Friday, and even that was 2 letters.

    Waiting for a HB cheque, will give it till tommorow lunchtime then go to sorting office its only 5 minutes walk away but I am more worried about house first.

    ive tried ringing - im just getting to the electronic sytem and every time i press the numbers to get the right information i am being given useless info before the call ends.

    I oredered £240 worth of goldsmith vouchers three weeks ago and teso said they despatched them last week. So need to get them now if i want to get anything before christmas.

    Also waiting for bills. I might just drive down a bit later on - fingers crossed i can get them otherwise it will be a wasted journey.

    Where are you?

    We have not had that much snow the last week but not had post for ages and im waiting for things. Today we do have 'real' snow and today deserves the excuse for not delivering but not the past week

    still no snow here (sussex coast)

    I'm a little envious!

    Still waiting for something I ordered on the 9th from Amazon. I live in Doncaster (South Yorkshire), and we've been getting the expected parcels over the last few days. The silly thing is, those that were ordered latest arrived earliest. Something that was sent first class on Friday last week arrived Monday, something that was ordered last Tuesday arrived today, and the thing I ordered on the 9th still hasn't arrived. It seems like they're giving preferential treatment to the packages sent later.

    being a postie ,ive delivered 100% of all post we`ve had in at up to at least a foot of snow,every day thru this!! :p...maybe im just stupid,but all my customers are happy!

    we got missed for a few days as it's a rough track to our house, but a mega bundle arrived this afternoon with our postie who was wearing shorts. Thaw started today, fields are all deep snow but the hedges and roads are clear and the roofs are melting. Kent

    they are - due to the way things are set up, it is in their interest to deliver the new stuff first and leave the late stuff sitting there.
