Nominate your postie for a First Class People Award

ROYAL Mail is reminding customers in Newtownabbey that the closing date to nominate their postmen and women for a 1st Class People Award is Friday, January 30.

The awards recognise and reward postmen and women who have made a special contribution to their local communities and Royal Mail wants to hear your stories about ‘1st Class’ postmen and women in the Newtownabbey area who are charity fundraisers in their spare time, have performed a public-spirited act or dealt with an emergency while doing their deliveries.

There is over 30,000 in prize money to be won and every postman or woman who is short-listed receives 100 - and every customer who sends in a nomination will have their name entered into a prize draw to win 1,000 in holiday vouchers.

Customers should write to Royal Mail explaining what makes their postman or woman special and nominations should be sent to: Freepost Royal Mail External Relations NI or emailed to giving as much information as possible about the postman or woman. Nominations should relate to the period January to December 2008.
