Card trouble as big freeze hits Chinnor’s post

Delay on Christmas cards arriving
Delay on Christmas cards arriving

The walls on Tom Rayfield’s home were rather bare this Christmas as he only received half the usual amount of cards through the post.

Each year the Chinnor resident receives about 100 cards, but this time that number was reduced to 54.

Mr Rayfield said: “We have phoned up and asked people if they have sent them and the answer is always yes.

“They seem to have just not arrived through the post – we haven’t had anything delivered since December 22, it is quite amazing.”
