Give a thumbs up for your local postie


Give a thumbs up for your local postie


A big thank you to your postie

Up and down the country people have been posting beautiful messages to thank our posties for the wonderful work they are doing to help keep the country running during this difficult time  - especially by delivering letters and parcels to the vulnerable who are unable to leave their homes.

To show our appreciation, we’re asking the nation to get involved by giving your local postie a big ‘thumbs up’ from a  safe two metre distance.  Postmen and Postwomen are at the heart of the communities they serve so stay connected with them and show your support with a friendly thumbs up.


You can download these images for the kids to colour in - or create your own.

How to get involved


Take a selfie

Take a selfie of you and other members of your household giving a thumbs up when you see your postie


Use #ThumbsUpForYourPostie to post on your social media


Finally please share, share, share! We want our posties to know that they are massively appreciated as you are too

Get creative

You can take a ‘thumbs up’ selfie or get the kids to do a painting, collage or a drawing of two thumbs up, use stickers or simply download our templates and share your fun creations

Keep safe

We thank you for keeping you and our posties safe by always staying two metres away – that’s just over the height of a postbox - and take your selfie indoors

Remember to have fun, use #ThumbsUpForYourPostie to share and always keep a safe distance apart.
