Meet the Chronicle delivery team

Whatever the conditions, there is a reliable Chronicle delivery team who drop a Chronicle in your letterbox every week.This issue we are focusing on the students in the group who fit this responsibility into their busy weeks, having to work around their school hours, bus commutes and sport practices. Read about their experiences and the advice they have for local residents.

A massive thank you from the Chronicle team and to their awesome parents who support them.

In the coming weeks we will meet more of our dedicated delivery team.
