GOOD Friday marks the beginning of the four day Easter bank holiday weekend; a glorious time with an abundance of hot cross buns and easter eggs.
But those expecting deliveries, or needing to send post, may be wondering if Royal Mail will still be in action.
Is there post on Good Friday?
Bank holidays typically see some businesses close their doors, and Easter weekend is no different.
This means there will be no post on Good Friday – April 2 – and Easter Monday – April 3.
A statement on the Royal Mail website reads: “We deliver and collect your mail on most days of the year, including Saturdays.
“However, we don’t usually deliver or collect on bank and public holidays.”
Are there deliveries?
Royal Mail will hit pause on deliveries and collections on the bank holidays over the weekend.
Similarly to post services, delivery services will not take place on Good Friday – April 2 – and Easter Monday – April 3.
Are post offices open?
While a select few local branches, including those inside convenience stores, will remain open, others close their doors over the Easter weekend.
We would recommend checking your local branch’s operating hours this weekend before setting out.
You can check which branches are in action via Royal Mail’s branch finder, which you can access via this link here.
