    They never used to Saturdays when I started. Any Saturday posts will be getting done Mondays.

    I've just rejoined and don't remember ever getting a cube as part of the training!
    If they send me one for training it's going in the bin

    Re the following question:

    How to record received post with stamp only crossed by pen? No post mark and date.

    I phoned the Helpline to ask this and was told to record it as "No postmark".

    It happens quite a lot and I think it should be included in the FAQs.

    Can I ask what do people do with all the polystyrene that arrives in the cubes/packages? There's only so many fishing flies that need to be tied, and cake toppers that need to be dried - what else can you do with it? Does anyone need it?

    Back on training again - its a bit daft having me retrain when I only finished my last stint 3 months ago - really hoping the number of parcels doesn't get ridiculous...

    I had to retrain with only a week out. At least I got both the final pack and the first live pack with presentation stamps.

    Putting them as filler in any parcels I send where the box is a bit big fir what's inside.

    Out of interest, why is posting on a Saturday any more days difficult than posting any other day of the week? I'm not seeing a problem.

    For me it is because I am not usually out & about before the last pick up.
    Though I think you can post the night before that does not always suit me either.

    I usually put them back in cubes that I have to post, put 3 or 4 in some of them. Makes the box feel a bit sturdier, but not a lot heavier.
