Doing the Rounds

Bognor, Chichester, Portsmouth and Southsea

Men and women, your local posties

In all weathers tramping the streets

Sensible shoes on hard-working feet

Besides a red top without which they’d never be caught

It’s de rigueur for them to wear shorts


n.b. It’s part of the way the posties on the South Coast seem to dress for work.

Postal delivery staff are a group of public service workers that have really been put through the mill by the demands of privatisation. They deserve our respect and thanks for their part in the fabric of our society.

They visit every front door in the country. They know stuff.
