Readers may know that the Royal Mail's depot at Gwaelod-y-Garth was closed, following the recent floods. Services have been moved to Llanishen - which means that Radyr and Morganstown residents face a long drive across North Cardiff to retrieve undelivered parcels, etc.
Rumours circulated that the move may be permanent - and that the Gwaelod depot would be closed for ever.
Our Facebook message about this was picked up by BBC journalist Anwen Pritchard-Rowlands, who managed to speak with the Royal Mail (which is quite an achievement, given that the Royal Mail's website is devoid of any contact details).
This is the response she received from a Royal Mail Spokesperson:
“As a result of severe flooding at Cardiff North West Delivery Office, we are temporarily working from Cardiff North Delivery Office (Cheviot Close, Parc ty Glas Cardiff, CF14 5XW). We are in the process of cleaning the impacted site, and we are assessing any damaged caused. We are working hard to ensure there will be no impact on our services to customers during this time. The Cardiff North West Delivery Office delivery office is important to our business and there are no current plans to close it.”
This is good news - and our thanks go to Anwen for her work on this story.
