You’ll never see a postman on a bike

NOSTALGIA: Bathing belles drew huge crowds to their seafront beauty pageants

Have your say

No doubt you have heard of the song You’ll Never See a Farmer on a Bike.

Well, you’ll never see a postman on a bike any more either.

I caught up with my postman and asked where my regular one was. Since the demise of the bike some weeks ago, he had retired.

It appears a van drops off my postman’s mail in the Havant area and it’s delivered in one direction, then the postman returns to the van to pick up another delivery bag. I am sure someone has worked it out.
