    Royal Mail statement on gold post boxes

London 2012 was a unique occasion. The UK hosted the Games and our athletes performed extraordinarily well. Because of our status as the host nation, RM chose to mark the achievement of our athletes through gold post boxes as well as stamps. For the winter Olympics 2014 Royal Mail will not be creating gold postboxes but we are exploring other ways of marking the achievements of our athletes, including creating a special postmark.”

    ‘Roses are red…violets are dead’: Brits ignore old clichés and go for the personal touch this Valentine’s Day

Britons are falling out of love with an old Valentine’s Day cliché, according to Royal Mail.

A new survey has found that eight in ten people are planning to drop the poem ‘Roses are red…’ from their Valentine’s Day cards this year, instead favouring a personal touch, with a heartfelt message (43%) or a funny ditty (13%).

Meanwhile, a handwritten card appears to be the key to winning your partner’s heart, with over half of Britons (52%) saying it’s the most important thing to receive on Valentine’s Day, compared to just 14% for flowers and 4% for a gift.
