The team arrived early this morning, bright eyed and bushy tailed, ready to start delivering the September issue of the Welcome to Chester & Cheshire brochure for Chester City Council.
At 9.30am, the printers pulled up outside our warehouse, which gave us just one day to deliver about 18,000 glossy brochures to a range of hotels, guest houses and other hand-picked establishments. We were already running a day late because they hadn't got them to us on time, so it was all hands to the deck.
LDS vans could be seen zooming hither and thither through the historic streets of Chester and along winding country lanes as far as Nantwich. Just to make our job a bit more interesting, Chester Racecourse was hosting its August Festival and the roads were choc-a-bloc with traffic and clusters of elegant ladies in extraordinary hats.
Nevertheless, by 5pm, we had almost done and it was time to breathe a collective sigh of relief. That is, until next month when the same thing happens all over again!
