Delivering the Goring Gap News
Who does what?
Liaises with the printers and the three Distributors to ensure the right number of copies of GGN are delivered to the right Distributors at the right time (normally on a Wednesday).
Coordinates finding a new a Deliverer when one leaves (a note in GGN works wonders)
Contacts the Reserve List members - of whom there are 24 so plenty of people to help - if a deliverer is not able to do their round one month for some reason (we all need holidays) to find one of them to do the round.
Distributes some GGNs to - for instance - the shops (McColls, Jack's and Inspirations), the postal subscriptions manager, and the GGN office.
Alun Hickman for Goring East
Perrine Elsey for Goring West
Diane Paddick for Streatley and the outlying villages.
Each receives copies of GGN from the printer (normally on a Wednesday) and splits them up into groups which they distribute to the numerous Deliverers in their area, with whom they liaise.
The 50 Deliverers
Each deliver the copies they have received from their distributor to between 15 and 60 local households. Often a round takes just 20 minutes, though there are some considerably longer ones.
2020 Message from the Distribution Manager
Welcome to the Deliverers section … this is where we’ll let you know news about deliverers, new ones to welcome, those who are “retiring” … news about anything that impacts us as Deliverers. It would also be lovely to have your input here … please send photos and news to me for inclusion … for example, we have a photograph of the husband of one of our deliverers clearing the snow on their drive to be sure that she’d be able to get out to deliver!
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year in 2020 … the start of another decade for us all and I’m sure one that will be exciting and challenging at the same time.

New and Past Deliverers
We thank and say goodbye to:
Janice Wild was the deliverer in Fairfield Road for 29 years ... she took the role on two years after the publication of the first GGN and retired from delivering in July 2019. She and her husband, Peter (our Sports Editor) have recently moved nearer to the village. Thank you for your work for all those years, and probably in all kinds of weather - and undoubtedly you'll have many happy and amusing tales to regale us with! Wishing you the happiest of times in your new home.
Michael and Kim Robertson have been Deliverers in The Coombe since 19XX and have recently retired. The Coombe is steep and notorious in the snow! So they have walked up and down, slipping and sliding at times … but always with the most wonderful views. Thank you for your delivering for all those years.
We thank and welcome:
Becca McKenzie, who is covering Fairfield Road
Cristina Watkins is delivering to the top of The Coombe
Tim Chatterton is delivering to the rest of The Coombe
