The Chalford donkey did his first delivery on Saturday 27th September. We took bread, papers, milk, bacon and eggs to some very happy Chalford residents. Teddy the donkey did a grand job of carrying everything safely and I think he actually enjoyed himself! He didn't complain once and was happy to go up and down and round and about the streets of Chalford.
We were accompanied by Paul Glendell, a free-lance photographer who is hoping to sell a pic to the national press of the donkey's first delivery. I think it was a surprise for some residents to have a camera waiting for them as they stepped out to pick up their delivery in their dressing gowns! Hope nobody minded!!
