Once again I'm awaiting delivery of the latest issue of ME magazine (4655), Is there any reason for late delivery or am I just unlucky.

COVID is causing a certain amount of bother at the moment!

Mine arrived Saturday afternoon.

Patience. I'm sure the post office are doing their best. Especially at 85p a pop for a first class letter. We've got a lot of posties off work in Essex.

I am still waiting for mine in North Hampshire, let’s hope it’s not lost mailbags like it was a couple of years ago.

Oh dear, with current restrictions affecting publicatioin and postal deliveries you are fortunate and should count yourself lucky that any magazines were published and delivered at all.

I just received (4th January 2021) a Christmas card from my sister in the UK, it was posted 11th December 2020.

As for a reason for 'late delivery' consider keeping up with the daily news. There are a few major issues affecting our daily lives at this time..

I was absolutely astounded when all my 2020 copies of MEW actually made it to Australia.

So please be patient Eric, there are a few greater problems affecting the world than your timely delivery of a magazine. Hopefully it should arrive soon.

My ME came on Saturday.

Please allow extra time for obvious reasons.

If issues do not arrive, raise a query with subscriptions (see bottom right of each page of the website for details).

Hi Dave,

I'm afraid I don't know the timetable for ME but it has probably bee adjusted to reflect both the last lockdown and Christmas/New Year break.

I have enquired about the online date for ME 4655 - I suspect print copies have got a bit ahead of the digital timetable again.

It is not the only magazine I am expecting that has not arrived.

I suspect that locally we no longer have a daily postal delivery. Should this surprise anyone?

Correct.

Asked Postie today, he says it can be two or three days between collections and deliveries.

It is now fairly normal to have no (UK city suburb ) post for two or three days, and then to receive a whole load.

Presumably whatever staff are able to work can no longer work their normal walk, and so the mail gets bulked up every few days, when the posties can deliver in our area.

The things awaited with baited breath are Birthday cards, Vaccination notification and Issue 300.

Hopefully the pension payments are going into the bank electronically!

Digital versions of 4655 and 300 now available on this site, not checked Pocketmags.

I was chatting to our local postie (Scottish Borders) this morning - there are parts of the country, south-east and London in particular, with huge undermanning problems due to a certain virus variant. From what I gather if you get a delivery every few days at the moment you are luckier than some!
