"Chester Standard"

news-2

Until relatively recently free copies of the "Chester Standard" used to be delivered door-to-door in Tarvin.A succession of local teenagers (and sometimes older people) did the deliveries, and from time to time you would get a visit from a "checker-upper" asking whether you were receiving the paper. More recently the deliveries became more intermittent, and then ceased altogether – perhaps because of difficulties in recruiting deliverers, or because it was too expensive/time-consuming to maintain the network.

Now the paper has formally abandoned house-to-house to delivery in much of its circulation area, and instead created a network of venues where free copies will be available for collection, at least on a trial basis. In Tarvin these venues are the Post Office, Greenacre Garage and the Community Centre. 40-50 copies are currently being made available each week in the Community Centre foyer – but whether this will continue will depend at least partly on whether they prove popular with Centre users.
