I ordered a new PO Box for my CartoonChurch.com mail and card orders and suchlike and suchforth. I then decided to send myself some letters so that I could (1) test the PO Box and (b) get some post because I like post.
I sent one letter on October 2nd, the day that the PO Box was due to start working, and one four days later. Both letters arrived on Tuesday. The 16th of October.
Better late than never. It does mean that after an initial hiccup the PO Box is now at last working. Therefore I can now be postally contacted by writing to:
PO Box 6250
I am quite pleased with the last bit, 0DD. Please note it is ‘zero’ DD, not the letter ‘O’ DD. Please do not make your 0 look like an O or the post might not get through.
I have hopefully now updated all the places on this website and the various forms so that they all have this address. My Rayleigh address and PO Box should still work for a number of months, but this is now the one to use.
If anyone would like to send me post of any kind (not bills) then please do.
I have to say that the whole postal situation with this and also my forwarding of mail has been a bit of a bother as both have been quite unreliable. But I do still remain a fan of the Post Office and in particular their local branches, which are once again in the news. On which note, if any record executives are reading I’m really hoping that someone will release ‘Don’t close the Post Office‘ by JonnyB (previously reported here) as a single. Never has the time been more timely.
