Post office staff dress up to raise funds for charities

On behalf of the staff at Johnsons of Reepham and Reepham Post Office, I would like to thank all our wonderful customers for their patience, tolerance and thoughtfulness throughout the Christmas period and indeed throughout the whole of the pandemic.

The government guidelines that have been in place since the end of March 2020 have meant we have had to limit the number of customers, both in the shop and in the post office, and we have been at pains to adhere to these severe restrictions to protect our customers and ourselves.
We are proud to have remained open every day during the pandemic; it has not been easy, especially at the post office counter.
We have been unable to open a second post office counter because of social distancing rules and knew that Christmas would be problematic for us.
It is testament to our wonderful customers who have tirelessly abided by the rules, often standing in long queues outside the post office in cold, wet weather, yet remained remarkably cheerful and understanding of the constraints under which we work.
Throughout December the staff wore Christmas jumpers and in some cases elf costumes, elaborate earrings and headwear to raise funds for the Big C cancer charity and Parkinson’s UK, a Parkinson’s research and support charity.
I would also like to thank all customers who have contributed to these worthy causes. In total we raised £348.46.
Once again thank you for your continued support. Stay safe.
Di Roberts, Reepham Post Office
