This George V Postbox (SK14 26) on Bennett Street is one of the oldest post boxes in Hyde and stands outside what was formerly a sub post office.
The last collection time given for postbox SK14 26 is 5.30pm Mon-Fri (11.00am Sat) but a change notice has been affixed reading:
"In order to improve efficiency we're reviewing our mail collection arrangements and revising collection times. From 15th September 2014, the final collection from this postbox will be made no earlier than 9.00am Monday to Friday and 7.00am on Saturday."In other words (correct me if I've got it wrong) previously if you posted a letter before 5.30pm it would be definitely collected that day - now if you post a letter after 9.00am it may not get collected until the following day - efficiency for whom?
