Wendy Makes a Difference!

Wendy Jenness who has been delivering the Royal Mail to Gislingham households for 12 years was the recent recipient of a BBC Radio Suffolk, “Make a Difference” Award, for going beyond the call of duty.

If you were up early on Monday 21st December, you may have heard Wendy on the radio at 06.40 when Radio Suffolk Breakfast Show host Mark Murphy phoned her to tell her of the award.

Wendy was nominated by Gislingham residents who told the Radio Suffolk, “We have the most wonderful post lady called Wendy, in Gislingham. She goes way beyond just delivering the mail. She is very much part of our community and is loved in our village. She really is brilliant!”

Wendy, who has been a post lady for some 32 years said: “I am only really doing my job, along with all my fellow Royal Mail colleagues. But I do check on people, as I have a lot of customers who live alone. So, I do get milk and things if needed; especially during these unprecedented times.”
