Info, please: are letters getting to the UK as normal, or normalish, under lockdown? Parcels?

There is some discussion on Page 4 of this thread As far as I can tell stuff is moving in both directions but more slowly than normal. Perhaps 2 to 3 weeks compared with 1.

Yes, my Dad is in a care home in the UK and he is getting the letters and cards I am sending. Likewise, post is coming from the UK to us but perhaps not as quickly.

Thanks guys, that's helpful. It's the Greece to UK leg that I'm interested in. Funny all those years of ordering stuff from Britain that I couldn't get in Greece, and now it's t'other way round.

Are you sending them toilet paper?

No joking, tomorrow I am sending my Dad’s care home 500 latex gloves. They are desperately low on PPE and my sisters who live near the home cannot get a single box.
