Shetland MSP Beatrice Wishart is encouraging people to show their appreciation for postmen and women who have been working flat out by giving them a thumbs up.
Royal Mail staff have an important role during the coronavirus pandemic in delivering essentials and helping to keep communities connected. Royal Mail is asking people to show their appreciation by giving a thumbs up to their postie from a safe distance and encouraging children make colourful pictures for their front window.
Ms Wishart said:
“Royal Mail is a vital part of keeping people connected across the country at the best of times, and never more so than now when we’re isolating. For many people, a postie delivering essential items could be the only person they see that day.
“I am happy to give a thumbs up for Shetland’s posties to thank them for their key role in helping us to get through this pandemic.”
