mystery of the sealed post boxes part 2.
Boxes in Roehampton have suffered the same mysterious "ailment"
as those in West Putney in
May - they have been sealed forcing residents to find
again there are no notices informing residents why or when
"normal service will resume",
and once again it is for the same reason as last time... the
keys have been stolen and new locks must be ordered to replaec
them; this could take another week.
appears that the keys were stolen on Tuesday
afternoon by children and the boxes were emptied and then
sealed by the Post Office to prevent theft. John Hammond the
manager of Putney sorting office explained that explainatory
notices were not placed on boxes as a matter of routine. Perhaps
they should be as a matter of courtesy?
