Members of the public are being encouraged to show their gratitude towards postal workers who are continuing to deliver mail by putting up posters in their windows or leaving drink on their doorsteps.
On Wednesday 29 April, National Postal Workers Day is being held in honour of postal workers across the country.
A spokesperson for the union stated that in the “unprecedented times” we are living in, “one thing always remains constant — the significant role our members play in every community in the UK”.
“This year we are calling on the public, media and politicians to give a greater level of recognition to postal workers than ever before,” they said.
“The sight of posters in windows, drinks left on doorsteps or even a simple ‘thank you’ mean the world to our members.”
