I love Cambridge - a classic English towm with so much of what I admire. Much of it is perhaps old fashioned in its world view - but I dont consider this to be a bad thing - on the contrary I think that's what makes it so desireable. Get the leaflets distributed here isn't so much the machine type job of a more modern town like Southend on Sea or even Norwich. When I am delivery around Cambridge it is more like going for a walk and saying hello to lots of random people. I always use my bicycle when leafleting Cambridge - it just seems so apt.
The cart to bring the leaflets from door to door seems out of place - like should be in Kings Lynn or Great Yarmouth - for Cambridge or Cambridgeshire it has to be the bike to fit in. I struggle somethime to get on the leaflets on-board - I have a front basket, two side panniers and a carry device over the back wheeel to stand any chance of getting them all (sometimes we deliver leaflets in two's or even three's). As I aim to deliver at least 3,000 leaflets in a day that can mean carrying 9,000 leaflets at one time.
Yes - that is a long day - but I don't mind - really - if people are friendly and the weather not too inclement then it is a joyous day. I often stop by a pub for lunch - in Haverhill or Saffron Walden or any of the little villages out side Cambridge and enjoy a ploghmans in the beer garden and a pint of their finest ale. As I am a leaflet distributor I can start and finish when I like - just as long as I get them all out I've done my work - what more could you ask for?
So, that's why I like doing leaflet distribution in Cambridge - I don't mind delivering leaflets around Kings Lynn or Harlowe either as they too have many nice areas - though admittedly if it gets a bit too much on the scenic countryside one isn't going to get too many leaflets delivered - one need some rows of houses - preferably terraced - to get a good volume in an hour. But there is travelling between the villages that makes it worthwhile for me - I like the freedom and the ability to make maony as I need to and enjoy myself more when I don't.
So there you go - if you need leaflet distribution Cambridge then I'm your man I guess - leaflet delivery is the name of my game.
