Retirement of Postman Alex Ramsay, 65. Alex has been with Royal Mail for 17years

Retirement of Postman Alex Ramsay, 65.
Alex has been with Royal Mail for 17years, with around seven of those spent delivering mail in Knockenteiber.
Alex retires three days before his 66th birthday on Tuesday. Residents turned out to surprise him during his last shift on Saturday, gathering in the village to present him with well wishes and gifts, which included a bottle of Isle of Harris Gin, a cake in the shape of a parcel, a knitted postman doll, and around ?600 in cash donated by residents, which Alex says he will put towards some new photography equipment.
His daughter, Claire Harty and grandson Haydn Ramsay, 9 were there to surprise him too.
Alex is looking forward to spending more time pursuing hobbies during his retirement, including fishing, badminton and photography, and has recently bought a pup to train as a gun dog.
Alex quotes:
? had no idea this was coming this morning, absolutely speechless, it? quite amazing. I don? feel I deserve all this, I? just doing my job delivering letters, it? overwhelming they?e done this for me and it means a lot.
??e been working all the way throughout the pandemic delivering the post, I think since the pandemic started maybe people appreciate that the key workers are still working and giving them a service, especially if they?e stuck in isolation.
?nockentiber's a great wee village, it? a lovely community. The way they?e worked to tidy the place up and campaigned against litter, you can see the village is spotless now and it? got a real community spirit, the people are great.?
