Mail scheme’s all off!

Todmorden.

FOLLOWING my letter headed “Cracking idea, I’ll keep you posted” (Todmorden News, March ), I have an update.

Last week a lady from Royal Mail customer services in Salford phoned to say she had my invoice of £302.40 for the collection of my own mail.

She was ringing to inform me that Royal Mail has cancelled its plans to change for “own collections.” I have sent her a copy of the Tod News for her office notice board.

Perhaps she could forward it to the chairman who’s paid millions in salary and bonuses to implement these brilliantly stupid ideas.
