In March, the BPO issued a series of commemorative stamps highlighting the Bermuda Turtle Project and the organisation’s efforts to promote the conservation of marine turtles through research and education.

“As a reminder, to raise awareness of Bermuda’s postal service, this week the BPO planned a series of activities in tandem with the observance of World Post Day – which is recognized annually on 9 October. These events included an employee blood drive; a long service awards presentation; and today’s official unveiling of the turtle panels,” the Ministry said.

“More than 150 countries recognise World Post Day, which is in keeping with the anniversary of the establishment of the Universal Postal Union [UPU] in 1874 in Bern, Switzerland. The observance encourages UPU member countries to undertake activities aimed at generating broader awareness of the Post’s role and activities among the public on a national scale.”

    No doubt the turtle panels for the 50th anniversary look good. We are now awaiting patiently to hear the cost of this project.

    Obviously these post office gurus have been too busy with turtle panels so have not had time to inform the tax paying public that the Perot Post Office on Queen Street has been closed for days. Yet press releases were managed to be sent out today out with critical details of turtle panels and photos of post office staff but nothing sent out to the community about closure of Perot Post Office leaving Bermudians bewildered and lugging mail elsewhere.
