So last year

We have just learnt that the postman on a pushbike is now a thing of the past here in Leckhampton. No longer will we see Pete turn up at our gate on his cycle for a chat about the latest Manchester United news. At least, we may still get the news, but not the cycle, as he and his letters now get delivered by van nearby, and the round is then made on foot. Not a great contribution to cutting carbon, one would have thought - and what's become of all those bikes?
