Whitford postman Terry Pratt with wife Jan receives a cheque from Denise Loud


Whitford’s popular postman received a special delivery from grateful villagers last week.

Terry Pratt has been the village’s postman for almost ten years, and previously spent a decade as relief postman in the area.

Whitford residents decided to say a special thank you to him for the wonderful job he has always done for the village.

Denise Loud, from Pump Farm, presented him with a cheque from the residents at an afternoon tea party.

Terry and his wife Jan also had a very special treat.

A group of Whitford ladies, dressed in their night clothes, sang a few songs including Please Mr Postman accompanied by Edward Jacobs.

When asked ‘Why the nightclothes’?

“It’s all he’s ever seen us wearing!” they explained.
