  • Royal Mail disruption

    The Cardiff North West Delivery Office is closed following the flooding caused by storm Dennis. Over Christmas, the Web Team have learned that this is now to become a permanent closure. We are still seeking further information from Royal Mail on what implications this has for our access to postal services.

    Can we remind you that collecting packages from Lisvane Sorting Office is not your only option. You can also phone up and arrange for re-delivery at a time that is mutually convenient, or even arrange to collect the package from Radyr Post Office. The more people who request these services the more evidence we will have to re-instate a more local Sorting Office.

    Full details of the effects of this closure can be seen in our article on the after-effects of the storm.
