our area has dropped the early strt shift (5.20 am ) I did postying for a while years ago. It was a bit early

Ours varies from earlyish 9-10am to mid/late afternoon.

About 4 years ago ours was delivered around 8am. It is now 2pm.

Yes, very common. Posh people get theirs delivered at 7.45am.

Ours is normally about 1pm. My postie must have a massive round though, I was out and about really early the other day and saw him delivering. Doesn't bother me.

Ours used to come at 1pm but the postie must get up a bit earlier and its around 12pm now smile

About 3pm, generally. Never bothers me as I'm out at work anyway.

yes, It lokks as though the changes are made regionally.

I would not mind noon del. But any later is a poor service

We live a 5 minute walk from the sorting office, post comes any time between about 9.30 and 3pm.

After 2pm here most days. It's annoying on Birthdays or when you're waiting for something important to come but otherwise I don't really mind. I think our postie must have a long round as I often see him out much earlier in the day too.

Hah yes. We used to have two deliveries, first and second post, yes?

Then got just one (fine no problem)

Then the one post started to come around midday, then two/three o'clock. Also kind of fine.

Then I commented once at sorting office (not a pointed comment) that x delivery would be fine as it didn't make a difference as we only now got a second post (so recipients wouldn't get it until evening anyway iyswim)

I was frostily informed that NO, it was the second post that had been discontinued, we now just got a 'first post'. At the approximate time of the old second post, if not later. But still the first post grin

I laughed in their faces and informed right back that if it looks like the second post, it smells like the second post, and is delivered at the time of the second post, then first post it ain't.
