Hi Dave
Was it customer services you emailed?
 
Normally magazines are recycled by the subscription people after 3 months.
I have asked for 4393 and MEW 172 to be returned to MyHobbyStore after the 3 months.
This means ME 4393 should have 240 copies available for any missing deliveries.
This includes the back numbers quantity so we should be ok for the small number that have gone missing unless we send out issues to people who still might receive them.
 
regards David

Hi John
That is my problem, which issue and at what time do we assume the magazine is missing?

Replacement MEW 171 and ME 4393 arrived today 6 days after action by  CDS Global. Pity it was not Issue 172 as awaited.

No sign of my subscription copy of MEW 172 here in Dundee. I emailed customer services yesterday (no reply as yet ), but was that the best email address to use?

Hi Douglas
Email me direct at david.clark@myhobbystore.com
Give me name and address and subscription number if known and missing issue.
I expect there is a delay answering email as the subscription company deals with subscriptions for may companies.
regards david

Hi,
I am also waiting for ME 4394 to arrive in North Hampshire. Suppose heavy rain will be blamed for its late, or non arrival. Funny how none of the bills and junk mail get affected though

Hi There
Anyone missing 4393 or 4394 or MEW 172 should email me direct with their name address and subs number if known.
I will be doing a missing issues request over the weekend.
 
I can't see how 4394 was delayed in the snow. I thought the snow was over when it was posted.

Hi
could be because the extra we pay for first class Royal Mail
pays for the deliberate delay of the second class service
to ensure the first class mail arrives first

Hi David,
 
That's a bit early to send Christmas cards don't you think?

Hi,
 
MEW 172 hadn't arrived by 4 Jan so I phoned My Hobby Store.  No fuss or argument, they promised a replacement straightaway.  Arrived earlier this week.  Happy with that.
 
Regards,
 
Trevor (in NE Hampshire)

I see that, according to this morning's newspaper, mail posted in Somerset before Christmas has just been delivered to West Sussex. Wonderful, isn't it? Whatever would Roland Hill or Ralph Allen made of it?
 
Regards

Somerset - a beautiful county, well worth the diversion, as the Michelin guide would say!

I don't believe it! I've just noticed a couple of adverts at the top of one of the pages of this thread:-
 
"Free Business Ideas - Free tailored pack of fresh ideas for your business, from Royal Mail"
 
and
 
"Magazine Printing - Start-up magazines. Try our easy-to-use enquiry forms"
 
Don't tempt me!

Hi There
I have just had MEW 173 from the printers by courier.
Looks like the printers have speeded up the printing.
Hopefully, tomorrow or Monday, MEW 173 will start hitting doorsteps.
regards David
