He was also given a tour by the office’s manager Danny Ainsworth.

Mr Gapes said: “It was great to meet the dedicated, hard-working Royal Mail postmen and women at Ilford’s delivery office and to see first-hand just how much effort they put into delivering for people at this time of year.

“I would like to thank them for their efforts and wish them all the best.”

Mr Ainsworth added: “Our people pull out all the stops throughout the year to ensure mail is delivered quickly, but even more so over the busy festive period.

“We are grateful that Mike Gapes came along to see the hard work that goes on behind the scenes.

“Our people do a fantastic job at this time of year to ensure that friends and families stay in touch through their Christmas greetings and gifts.”
