Neil Findlay MSP for Lothian has backed Royal Mail’s campaign to give postmen and women a thumbs up when they appear to deliver mail.
Postmen and women have been working tremendously hard, delivering mail and parcels, throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and have a played a huge role in keeping the country connected during this difficult time.
As a way of saying thank you to our Posties, Royal Mail has encouraged everyone to give them a ‘thumbs up’ from a safe two-metre distance, when they come to deliver any mail. This is a sign of gratitude but also a reminder to keep a safe distance from your Postie during the pandemic.
Members of the public can also share a video or photo on social media giving a ‘thumbs up’ and using the hash tag #ThumbsUpForYourPostie
Children are also encouraged to put thumbs up pictures in their windows, templates can be found here.
Neil Findlay MSP said:
“Postal workers have done a tremendous job to keep the country connected during this unprecedented crisis. They deserve a wholehearted thank you from all of us.
“Please give your Postie a thumbs up, from a safe distance, the next time they deliver your mail to show your gratitude.
“This pandemic has shown that key workers, like postal workers, and many others, should never be undervalued again.
