Recently thanks to the clever idea of the new apartments in there being given the same postcode as the houses on Church Rise, I receive a lot of mail for the apartment with the same number as my door on the road.

This could be because people are making a mistake when selecting their address on automatic address finders on websites, as both are listed under the same postcode. Or it could be companies not posting mail to the full addresses.
The other possibility is that the postie is having the same problem as me and cant work out for love nor money HOW to reach the building to use the door entry system to contact the recipient or post the mail.

Any help welcomed. But how STUPID having same numbers and postcodes on the same road.

Its all clearly an after thought, has anyone seen the poor attempt at naming the building. The developer clearly forgot to do that too.

Hi Snazy,

You are right there was definately some missing links with the post situation! My wife and I have lived here for just over a year and getting post is a nightmare.... and a courier is just not even worth attempting, there is no buzzer outside so an entry code needs to be known before anyone can get to the buzzers.

If there is any post you would like to pass on that would be fantastic... I think you might even have one or two of our House Warming cards that never made it from last year.

Let me know.

Hi there Phil, thanks for the reply.
I return all mail that arrives here for The Apostles at present, but if anything should turn up here, I will be happy to forward it on to you. Are you at 8 there then?
If you want to pass me and email address, mobile number or something, then I will contact you if anything shows up.
Lovely places you all have there by the way.
