Isle of Man Post Office Chairman Stu Peters MHK has unveiled the first King Charles III cypher to feature on one of the Island’s post boxes.
Located at Postal Headquarters, Douglas, the royal cypher has been included on one of our post boxes that is suitable for customers to drop off parcels, this marks a new era in postal history. The cypher adds to IOMPO’s current boxes which display a range of royal cyphers, the oldest dating back to Queen Victoria in 1840.
This year sees IOMPO reach 50 years since its inauguration from the UK’s postal service in July1973 and as part of this milestone, a range of activities to celebrate with staff and customers alike will be held.
The business has 244 post boxes and throughout the anniversary year, its maintenance programme to repaint and make boxes look resplendent remains ongoing.
