FATN Talking News

4th October 2020: Due to an unfortunate error by the Post Office listeners may have recently received an empty FATN wallet. This should not have happened, and does not indicate a resumption of our postal services, especially in the current worsening Covid 19 situation, so please return the empty wallets via the post in the usual way. FATN apologies for any confusion that this has caused, and you can be assured that our online services will be continuing until further notice.
