If you find one let me know, as having the Sundays delivered is a real treat for us! We used someone on HO Park but they were unreliable. We also used someone on Dartmouth Road near the pools but they delivered twice and then said they didn't have the staff so that fell apart. Good luck,

Also, lots of newspapers do deliveries themselves within the M25. The Times and the Independent definitely do it, but probably lots of the others. You often get freebies as part of the deal, too, and it's cheaper overall Smile

I still see the Asian couple who used to run the newsagent (now closed) in the same block as Provender on Dartmouth Road delivering papers near where I live (Thorpewood area). I think I heard they are now employed by 'Dartmouth News', in the next block along on Dartmouth Road, towards the station.

They were the couple who used to deliver to me. Perhaps they fell out with the owner. I'll definitely try the Dartmouth News and see how that works out. Thanks for the tip.

I'm up for being one of the 20 on the eastern side of Honor Oak Road- anyone else interested in Sunday newspaper deliveries?

Sorry, Dylan, I hadn't properly hoisted in the fact that Dartmouth News has changed its name.

Yes, Heb Mini Market deliver papers. They have delivered our weekend papers for years and are really reliable. The papers reach us 7.30-8am and that's just perfect.

Hi, I wouldn't mind the address of Heb Mini Market- will try and go in there next week to see if they will deliver the Observer . One of life's little luxuries that costs relatively little.

We use Heb as well and the service has been very good. Some newspapers also offer home delivery and the price looks very reasonable. I think Guardian, Times and Telegraph all offer it and possibly others. Bit of a turf war out there!
