A CHEERY postman has been putting smiles on residents' faces by delivering the post in full fancy dress every day.

Droitwich postie, Brandon Clark, has turned up to work as Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean,the Genie from Aladdin and even a hot dog.

Carole Brady, from the Westlands estate in Droitwich where Brandon delivers, said her postie always makes everyone’s day.

Mrs Brady, aged 67, said: “He dresses up each day in different costumes to bring a little cheer to what is a difficult time for many.

"The children, (and grown-ups) look out for him from Monday to Friday to see who is delivering the letters that day.

“Neighbours have also donated costumes, and some have actually bought them especially for Brandon to wear on his rounds.

“He is such fun, always smiling and happy to have photographs taken. It is lovely that a young man takes the time to brighten so many people’s day.

“It’s fabulous. I hope it continues when all this is over because it’s exactly how it should be – the community coming together and doing things to make everyone smile.”

Mrs Brady added: “He is absolutely brilliant. He’s only a young lad. He is always such a happy chap.

“Before he knocks on our door you can hear all the cars beeping at him while he is in his outfit.

"The other day an ambulance drove down our street and they even put their sirens on for him.

“Because our house is one of the first on the street he bangs on the door, we take a photo and put it on Facebook, then everyone knows Brandon is on his way.

“He brightens everyone’s day. It’s something to look forward to and gets everyone's day off to a good start.”

A Royal Mail spokesman said: “Over the last few weeks we have been inundated with messages and pictures from our customers across the country in praise of the extra lengths our postmen and women have been going - just like Brandon - during the coronavirus crisis to raise spirits, and money for local charities.

"We know that local communities really value what our postmen and women are doing in these challenging times, and we’re really proud of them, too.”
