The BVI Post is reinstalling letter boxes around the Territory to allow its customers to resume collecting mail at their own convenience.
Letter boxes at Republic Bank formally listed as Scotia Bank, First Bank and Sea Cow’s Bay have been completed and will be accessible from Friday, June 24 at 1:00 p.m. while those at Cane Garden Bay Post Office will be completed in short order.
The Acting Postmaster General, Mrs. Iris Romney said the project is continuing with the installation of the remaining letter boxes throughout Tortola, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke, adding that a phased approach is being applied to install the new letter boxes.
BVI Post is diligently working in collaboration with the Ministry of Finance, to have all the post box sites functional as soon as possible. The key strategy is to target the areas that do not require much extensive remedial works.
Mrs. Romney apologised for the length of time the project has taken and for the inconvenience which this may have caused. She went on to mention that with the reintroduction of the letter boxes, the public will no longer have to visit the General Post Office to collect their mail but can do that at their own convenience.
Letter box holders are asked to visit the Road Town Post Office to return the old letter box keys and collect their new keys for those sections that have been completed. For any questions or concerns, letter box holders are kindly asked to contact the BVI POST at 1(284) 468-5160 Mondays to Fridays 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and Saturdays 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
