Post box collection times
in East Hatley and Hatley St George

Monday to Friday – East Hatley.  According to the sign on the box, collections are 9.00 am weekdays and 7.00 am on Saturdays.

From 10th August 2015, the postman / lady who delivers our post is also collecting mail from the East Hatley post box, usually on the way into East Hatley to do the delivery round – on most weekdays.

The mail has to be collected at the latest by 1.30 pm – so in theory it can be collected any time between 9.00 am and 1.30 pm.

Occasionally it may be collected before the delivery round as the postman / lady sometimes have to reschedule their rounds on days when there are Parcel Force deliveries to do.

So, we can’t rely on our post being collected just before the delivery round – even if on most days it is.  Our postmen / women cover Waresley, Gamlingay, Hatley St George and East Hatley.

The post-woman we've spoken to has kindly said she’ll also take post from our houses as she goes round if we put it out with a note or hand it to her personally – she thought her colleagues will do likewise.

Meanwhile, there are two collections in Hatley St George!  The first is from Hatley PO shop and PO by the postman / lady during their morning round, times as above; the second is by a van from the post box – see below.

Monday to Friday – Hatley St George post is collected between 4.00 pm (as stated on the box) and 4.30 pm..

Saturday East Hatley.  The post is not collected from the post box by our postman, but by another person, any time between 9.00 am and 1.30 pm – not at 7.00 am as it says on the post box.

Saturday – Hatley St George.  10.30 am.
