Watford Observer: On this day in south west Hertfordshire On this day in south west Hertfordshire

This year, the postings recorded through the stamping machines at Watford between December 18 to 24 for the first time exceeded 1,000,000 - an increase of more than 7 per cent compared with the corresponding period last year.

Christmas Day deliveries were the heaviest for 20 years.
