Mine arrived yesterday, I'm surprised that the team were able to get them printed and posted in these difficult times. Well done everyone involved.

I must admit that until it was mentioned here I didn't realise that RM weren't delivering on Saturdays!

Yes,Alex is indeed engaged and the bans were read at church back in March this year,hence I was privileged to do the photos at Harpenden while young Alex was at the church.

As per last time, not made it to Rotherham yet, hopefully tomorrow. Odd really because had no issues with our post/parcels, indeed pleased to see our older and regular postie still providing excellent service.
Having delivered leaflets myself I know how tiring it is having to cope with letterboxes of all shapes and sizes often at an inconvenient height.

Nor here, stopped to change horses perhaps!
The post has been generally excellent though, as have the other couriers.

Deliverance!
Came today, looking forward to the usual good read.
I really appreciate the mags like the the Bulletin that have firm shiny covers. Your fingers don’t stick like they do with say “PW” where they also smudge the print.
