The Big Issue has just published a story about letter-writing, and friendship, and delivering your own hand-written letters on your own bike.

I have a postie’s bike, but not in good working order. Salvaged from a skip, it’s a rusted machine with a cracked leather seat, flat tyres and a chain that won’t budge. Still, it looks nice in the garden and reminds me that once upon a time I really did want to be a postie.

The story is in edition 518 of The Big Issue, available from vendors now. Look for The Beatles on the cover. Thanks.
