Royal Mail delivery - Good Friday

Found 2nd Apr 2010
Hi,
I posted an item yesterday afternoon from South Wales to Scotland - an item I sold on eBay.
I sent it First Class Recorded (so not 'Special Delivery'), and am just wondering whether any of you had Royal Mail deliveries today. I didn't think Royal Mail delivered on Bank Holidays, however it says on the Royal Mail website when I track the item "We have tried to deliver your item from our [*********] Delivery Office before 15:25 on 02/04/10 and we have left a while you were out card....."
I didn't think they delivered mail today and wasn't expecting the item to arrive until Saturday (tomorrow) or possibly Tuesday.

Did anyone else have any deliveries today?

nope not today

I delivered an item special delivery yesterday at 3PM. before the last collection, so Technically, it should be received tomorrow. if not, i will probably ask for a refund.

Yeah, I'm just wondering why Royal Mail say they tried to deliver it today and left a calling card because no-one was in when there wasn't even supposed to be any post today! I wasn't expecting it to get there until tomorrow at the earliest!

no it shouldn't, saturdays aren't classed as next day for special delivery unless you pay the extra. There's a good chance it will be but its not guaranteed

Yes normal delivery today in South West Scotland

According to RM website Scotland have normal deliveries today royalmail.com/por…663

yes I received mail today, came as a surprise

Can confirm, normal delivery today in south west,
as i received a few blurays from HMV this afternoon.

If its not too far north, which it musnt be then they will have tried to deliver today.
They'll just be waiting on the recipient to contact them regarding redelivery,
Monday is a bank holiday though, so no mail then

If they contact them asap re: redelivery they should probably receive it Tuesday.

We had a delivery today in the midlands.

Yeah we got mail today in Edinburgh. Don't expect your item to be next day thoug - I'm still waiting for a 1st RD item to be delivered to a buyer. Last one I posted took 12 days to arrive - to Dundee - I could have hand delivered it by walking quicker than that!
