A petition by a band of committed villagers is contiunuing in an effort to save a postman from being moved off his round.

Boxford has set up a campaign to save Kevin the postman, who has worked delivering mail to villagers for the last four years.

Holbrook Barn Road resident David Lamming said: “We have learned in the last few weeks that Royal Mail is about make adjustments to a number of postal delivery rounds in the Sudbury area.

“As a consequence, all postal rounds will be up for reallocation, with the choice of rounds being determined by length of service.

“As a result, it is likely that Boxford will lose its popular postman, Kevin, who has served us well for the last four years.”

Mr Lamming said Boxford Village Stores had set up a petition for the popular postie to stay. Names are still be added.
