PRESS RELEASE – Budgerigar Society Ring Orders Being Posted Early

It is being widely reported that due to staff shortages Royal Mail is delivering post less than once a week in some towns and cities across Britain.

Hospital appointment letters, birthday cards, parcels and important bills have all gone missing in delays caused by a staffing crisis.

In one city, households say they’re receiving mail as infrequently as just once a fortnight.

Postal workers say delivery rounds have been axed and letters are piled up at sorting offices, as they are told to prioritise the more lucrative tracked and signed for deliveries.

They have branded the situation ‘diabolical’ and say they are facing an ‘angry backlash’ on the doorstep.


In view of this, the General Council have made the unprecedented decision to instruct our ring manufacturer to post the 2024 rings on 16th November 2023.

In these exceptional circumstances, the new date has been brought forward from the official date set in our rules of 30 November.

In the event of your rings not arriving, please do not contact the Office until after 30th November.

Post release note:

This week it was reported that the Royal Mail has been fined £5.6m for failing to meet its first and second class delivery targets in what the regulator has called a “wake-up call” for the postal service.
