[Forum] “Poor service” as last posting time at Baileys Court changed to 4.15pm

Collection times shown on a Royal Mail post box at Baileys Court, Bradley Stoke, Bristol.

Just noticed that the Royal Mail seems to have changed the last posting times at Baileys Court from 6pm to 4.15pm – really poor service in my opinion. What do others think?

Always lots of people posting down there just before 6pm. We already have a very poor post office service, particularly in the south of Bradley Stoke. Now we can’t even post things out at the end of the working day.

  1. Thanks to everyone who helped compile the list of collection times. The results show that, after the recent changes, none of the post boxes in central or south Bradley Stoke has a Mon-Fri collection time later than 4.30pm.

    If you need a later collection, you are faced with a journey to north Bradley Stoke (6pm latest) or the Bristol Mail Centre on Gloucester Road (7pm).
