Singing postbox delivers festive cheer in Cardiff | Wales

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 Edinburgh, London, Cardiff, and Belfast, installed with sensors which spark the messages. Simon Barker, operations director at Royal Mail, said: Delivering Christmas is our absolute priority this December.

Christmas 2018: Royal Mail to launch singing postboxes soon

In the process, we enjoy any way we can add a little extra fun to posting Christmas cards this year.

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.

Royal Mail has added a festive twist this year, and is introducing a singing postbox in Cardiff to serenade people when a letter or card is posted.

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

The postbox plays one of a selection of three Christmas-themed ditties when a letter or card is posted.

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

The singing postbox on Queen Street is one of four singing festive postboxes being launched across the UK.

In the process, we enjoy any way we can add a little extra fun (and festivity!) to posting Christmas cards this year.
