Could anyone help me and a friend with this question? We are both looking for a career change and thought this may well be a splendid move - outdoors, nice hours etc etc.

Hembro is right to find out about such an important step. I have long sensed that it is time for him to move on from the practice of medicine and seek a new challenge. Such a career move would be right up his boulevard. I think in light of the excellent information provided by slimsid, the move to the world of news delivery would prove to be most advantageous.

Templeton, thank you for your kind words of support and encouragement. I'm pleased that someone has brought serious light on this matter that is close to my heart. I feel that newspaper delivery is an important and respectable form of employment, if I can bring enough in from a few rounds to keep me in andrex and asprin then I'm going to take the plunge and make the switch.

In return I wish you all the best with colon investigative career that you are planning to launch shortly.

I am truly touched at your support. The colonic investigation and excavation sector fills me with great excitement and optimism.

I use to do a paper round, were going back about 6 years, but i did one in a morning, in the evening and at weekends and for all 3 i got 30 a week,

Sunday ones are a nightmare to deliver though due to all the extra magazines you get inside them!

I started my first round and got 8, then I got a new round which was only about 18 papers and round corner from my house and got paid 7. I eventually started to do both rounds and had a motorised scooter (goped) that I did it on. The neighbourhood wasn't very happy when I was riding that around at 7am! I also did the Gazettes round my end which was 410 papers for a measly 11 basic + extras for the leaflets/magazines, think most I gott for doing them was about 50 a week.

It's going back 20 years admittedly, but for 6 nights a week taking about 45 minutes per night, I received the less than princely sum of 3.

And most of them spend their wages in the newsagent thus giving it back to their employer :hihi: ;)

6 years ago I did a paper round 6 days a week, about 30 papers which took about an hour, then came the weekend sections which weighed about ten times as much and you know how much I got?

10 a week!

I did however do a leafletting job for an estate agents near me which involved carrying lots and lots of envelopes which we had addressed off a list and then delivered, that was a quite good money and quite enjoyable, try that! Mine was an estate agents called stevens I think.
