Jersey Post has put in place operational measures in preparation for the onset of Storm Ciarãn. On Thursday 2 November, Postal Headquarters at Rue des Pres and Broad Street post office will be closed to ensure the safety of all Jersey Post employees during the storm.
With the onset of adverse weather, there will be disruptions to the ferry service, and as such, mail will not be able to arrive on the Island until the stormy weather eases. Whilst it is business as usual today, with all deliveries going out as normal, it is expected that today’s morning boat will be the last until services are able to safely resume after the storm passes. It is hoped that mail will arrive by boat to the Island again on Friday morning, but Jersey Post is currently waiting on confirmation of this service from their ferry partners.
Julie Thomas, Managing Director of Postal and Logistics, said, “Our top priority as a business is the safety and wellbeing of our employees, in line with Government advice, we are putting measures in place to ensure they are not at risk during the storm. We would also like to reassure Islanders that, as soon as it is safe to do so, we will be doing our utmost to process and deliver mail as quickly as possible. We have extra measures in place to clear the backlog of mail as soon as it arrives on the Island but would like to advise customers to expect delays.”
As long as it is safe to do so, Postal Headquarters and Broad Street post office will reopen on Friday 3 November.
