Queensferry postmaster celebrates 60 years of service

A DEDICATED Deeside subpostmaster has joined the Queen in celebrating 60 years of service.

John-Pierce Margarson OBE, who has run Queensferry Post Office since 1952, received a long service award last week – at the age of 88.“It’s been quite a surprise – but a lovely one – to receive this award,” he said.

“I am very flattered to be recognised for serving the community. I am very lucky, as many of my customers have become my friends over the years.”

John was destined for a career in the postal service, being born above Sandycroft Post Office in 1924, where his father had been the postmaster for 25 years.
