First stop was Weymouth delivery office at some unearthly hour in the morning. I took to my motorcyle when it promptly began to rain. I am always amazed when visiting the posties at work, because you fully realise just what a service they all provide, come wind, rain or shine. The Weymouth team is full of characters and one persuaded me to sound a hooter three times, which drives management mad! I was caught in the act. The pile of parcels, mostly from Amazon, was staggering. I remained chatting to everyone for a couple of hours and then headed to the Pavilion to present the Royal British Legion with a cheque for nearly £2,000. The money had been raised my a team of ladies who knit poppies. Immensely popular, they sell like hotcakes! What a lovely team they are and we had fun chatting and being photographed. Next stop was Alf's Fish and Chip shop, where John Pearce has asked me to deliver some chocolates to a care home just down the road. John and his lovely wife are a remarkable couple, doing all kinds of things for their local community. With John in tow, I distributed the chocolates to all the elderly occupants and then headed back to the chippy for sausage and chips. They were so good. While we were eating, members of Weymouth Community Action came into the chippy and John promptly handed them £100 in cash as a Christmas present. With time pressing, it was then to Sainsbury's to meet my bag-pack team. We were raising money for both the Weymouth and Portland foodbanks and spent four hours packing customers' bags with great success. My bag-packing certainly improved! It was a fun and interesting afternoon, chatting to customers and seeing their reaction when asked if they wanted their bags packed. Some did, some were unsure and some very definitely did not! Back to the office at 1830 and back to my pile of Christmas cards.
