Every year around 40 million items of mail are handled by Guernsey Post. Our operations network provides a vital service for thousands of individual and business customers throughout the Bailiwick of Guernsey, including those on the smaller islands of Alderney, Sark and Herm. As well as providing its own wide range of dedicated products and services, Guernsey Post is the agent for Royal Mail services such as Royal Mail Special Delivery; for world leading services such as FedEx; and for Data Post and Parcel Force deliveries across the Bailiwick.
Guernsey Post is an operation that delivers in more than one sense. As well as getting millions of letter, parcel and package items to their correct destination, we operate a strong network of outlets where many thousands of our customers come to us for help and support.
Our comprehensive retail network comprises 12 different post offices. They offer everything from stamp sales to lottery tickets and mobile top-up cards which collectively give Guernsey Post a real presence in every corner of the Bailiwick.
The stamps produced by Guernsey Post are collected worldwide and are renowned for their design and quality. The first independent Guernsey postage stamps were designed and printed in 1969.
Guernsey Post now produces 12 issues of stamps every year. Over the decades many aspects of island life have been celebrated and significant occasions commemorated through our Guernsey and Alderney stamps.
Subjects of past issues have ranged from the sea and the natural world to agriculture and horticulture; from cars and transport to Royalty; and from sport and the arts to our maritime and military heritage.
Helping the Community
As part of our day to day involvement with the community, our postal workers are often complimented on their contribution to the wellbeing of the communities they serve. These are often small unreported acts of assistance but sometimes are more prominent and occasionally life saving.
On a formal basis we channel our support for the community through our "Supporting Together" initiative.
This initiative encourages all of our employees to give time and raise money for good causes. In most cases Guernsey Post will match a financial contribution or provide resources to kick-start fund raising initiatives.
Support in the last 12 months has been given to a number of very worthy local and international causes including:
- Sarnia Rescue
- Race for Life
- The Saffrey Rotary Walk
- Global Action Nepal (London Marathon)
- Cancer Research
- Granson World Youth Cup
- Little Princess Trust
- Sarnians Mini Netball
- Les Bourgs Hospice
- Christmas Lights Appeal
- Breast Cancer - Moonwalk
- Gsy Panthers Netball, fundraiser
- Bailiwick Bass Club
The events supported involved over 90 of our colleagues.
