I tried a "No junk Mail" sign but it had no effect. I wondered about having a cardboard box on the front step full of this crap, but I doubt that would work either.

Even worse is when the free newspaper boy minimised his round by pushing four copies through our letter box..........

A friend of mine deposits his through a particularly annoying second home owners letter box who constantly bemoaned such mail grin2

I couldn't possibly condone such behaviour it's just childish.

Mr Postie gets extra pennies for distributing this stuff with the Royal Mail, so a "No Junk Mail" sticker is on a loser from the start! smile

I absolutely love that, never would have thought of it as second home owners bring so much joy into our world when the arrive, just like the coming of the swallows !!!

Now that is a whole different subject and one with which I am quite familiar. A good friend of mine sold his house in Florida and bought an RV which he and his wife live in full time. They just follow the seasons of the sun left to right, up and down just as the temperature suits them. Now that's pretty damn good I think.

It is, we do it annually and we might as well not bother.

As an aside, one benefit of Covid is that we no longer get the Uni students working for the agencies door stepping and trying to get you to sign up to a Standing Order for some bleeding heart society or another.

It's a very good catchment area here full of early retired boomers so they travel out to the South Hams from Plymouth and Exeter it transpires in conversation with them.

I tell them them politely that we are fully committed to certain charities already, as we are, so no thank you.

We suffer very much the same when going into the City as the UEA Campus is within walking distance and the chuggers are always around in Gentlymans Walk.
