I read this morning that Glasgow is Britain’s most romantic city as posted items increase day before Valentine’s Day!
” (…) GLASWEGIANS sent 11.7 per cent more mail on February 13 2012, compared with the week before (…)”
See the excerpt below:
Lord Provost of Glasgow Sadie Docherty said she was not surprised by the research results.
She said: “This St Valentine’s tale simply proves that the people of Glasgow aren’t afraid to express their passions. Our reputation for romance is well known and with the remains of St Valentine’s resting in our city we continue to be proud of our association with the patron saint of love.”
The Royal Mail analysed its letter volumes in its Scottish mail centres from February 13 2012 in order to discover the country’s most loved-up cities and towns.Scotland’s top six romantic towns in the research were Paisley, Motherwell and Kilmarnock with an additional 11.70% volume of mail sent through Glasgow Mail Centre. Kirkcaldy, Galashiels and Falkirk had an additional volume of 4.10% processed through Edinburgh Mail Centre.
