Pendle MP Andrew Stephenson has congratulated the Royal Mail on continuing to deliver target-beating performance in the BB postcode area after they beat their first and second class targets for the first quarter of 2014-15.

94.5% of first class mail was delivered on time, the next day after posting, with 98.9% of second class mail delivered on time too.

Nationally, Royal Mail has a 93% first class mail target and a second class mail target of 98.5%. Royal Mail has the highest service specification of any major European country.

Mr Stephenson said: “The Royal Mail provides vital services we rely on.

“I congratulate them on again beating their service targets and on doing better in the BB area than the national average.

“These latest figures are excellent for Pendle residents and a testament to the great work done by the local Royal Mail team.”
