CHANGES are set to be made to postal deliveries in a Somerset town.

Royal Mail will be altering delivery methods and routes in Burnham over the next few weeks.

The firm says the changes are necessary to ‘modernise’ its operation.

A statement released by the firm said morning deliveries will continue and go on for a longer period during the day.

The time some households receive post will depend on where they live and may now be later or earlier.

A statement released by Royal Mail said: “The way in which we communicate with each other has changed dramatically.

“Unfortunately, fewer letters are now posted every day and Royal Mail needs to organise its delivery routes to be as efficient as possible.

“We also deliver an increasing number of larger items and so we are investing in new equipment to carry these items to customers even more securely.

“Postmen and women will use new delivery methods and adopt revised delivery routes as these changes are introduced on a phased basis.”
