Four post boxes, one located in each UK nation, have been made digitally active to mark Christmas 2020.

Each box has a QR code linking to a special festive message from Santa. Royal Mail says it wanted to: “spread yuletide cheer” as well as remind people to send letters, cards and parcels early for Christmas.

The post boxes – three of which are for letters and cards, and the other a parcel post box – have been decorated as beautifully wrapped Christmas presents.

They are digitally activated is a QR code contained within the post box designs is scanned using a smartphone. Once done, they can watch a short festive message from Father Christmas.

The four boxes are located in Brighton, Wrexham, Aberdeen and Bangor. They will be in place throughout December.

The precise locations are: Brighton, outside Churchill Square, BN1 2TA (this is a parcel post box); Wrexham, outside Natwest at 33 Lord Street, LL11 1LP, Bangor, outside the YMCA at 10-12 High Street, BT20 5AY; and Aberdeen outside Clydesdale Bank at 62 Union Street AB10 1WD.

Mark Street, Head of Campaigns at Royal Mail said: “This year more than ever, it is important to let loved ones know that they are in your thoughts. As always, delivering Christmas is our absolute priority at Royal Mail – particularly at the end of what has been a challenging year for many of us. In the process, we are thrilled to bring some of our special Christmas post boxes to more cities around the UK to help spread a little bit of festive cheer.”
