    Report from Jon Yapp

    A moving memorial's been unveiled at Ormskirk's Royal Mail delivery office.

    Thanks to its dedicated staff, the memorial - dedicated to local postal workers who lost their lives in World War I - now has pride of place in its enquiry area.



    It's been moved from the main Ormskirk Post Office which closed last month after relocating to WHSmith on Moor St.

    Postman Dave Wood made contact with various parties to ensure that colleagues are remembered at a Royal Mail site, and this morning delivery manager Jon Yapp told QLocal: "Without Daveís efforts, the memorial would have gone to The Civic and the valuable connection with the postal service would have been lost."

    Added Dave: "It was very important to get the memorial back.

    "The delivery office moved from the Post Office in 1989, but back then we didnít want to disturb it.

    "However, with the post office relocation it became really important to bring the boys home."

    Pictured at the memorial are, from left, postman Stuart Lea, Jon and Dave.

    I have a postcard went by Arkwright to his mother in 1908, he lived on Cottage Lane and she lived up Church Street! We also have lots of research done on each man on the memorial. Let us know if you would like us to bring it all as a display when you do the official dedication. I think we have photos of nearly every man.
