Christmas 2018: Royal Mail to launch singing postboxes soon

The Royal Mail is launching “singing” postboxes which play Christmas jingles when cards and letters are posted in London.

The sound of sleigh bells or a jolly message from Father Christmas will greet anyone sending mail at the special postboxes in the coming weeks.

Four of them are being launched, in both the capital as well as Cardiff, Belfast and Edinburgh, installed with sensors which spark the messages.

Simon Barker, operations director at Royal Mail, said: “Delivering Christmas is our absolute priority this December.
