Absolutely! I want to know what's going on around me, and what new idiot scheme the Council has for wasting our rates this year.
Unfortunately, whomsoever is supposed to deliver our local 'rag' in 3186 is dumping them somewhere & we have not rec'd a copy for 4 months! Somertimes I can get a copy at a real estate agent office. We pay for the local Leader in our rates & I want mine.
yes I wait for it each week to know about the fair and activities in the area. unfortunately they stopped delivering it in my street recently. I complained but it only worked for 2 weeks only. Now, I have to chase a copy in the shopping center of the area and I am not the only one. It is a struggle.
I lOVE reading my Leader!!! At the moment I can only read the headlines & the bigger writing, as I'm still waiting for the cataract to be removed from my left eye. My husband also reads through the whole paper. He seems enjoy reading the car section & the death notices! I like to see & (cut out) any article relating to our little superb! I have found a few, over many years!! Sometimes I've been standing on our drive, when the Leader person throws the papers from the car, & on his way back around our dead end 'St', I'll always call out, "Thank you" It used to be delivered twice a week, now it's only once. Even on my morning walk, I'll put people's papers into their recycling bin, if it hasn't been picked up, after a few days! (And yes, I do, take off the plastic bag/rubber-band & dispose of those into the red lid bin!) The family next door seem to leave theirs on the drive until the following bin collection!
