Flyers in the Accrington Observer

This week, Hyndburn Mela committee paid quite a lot of money to have an A5 flyer inserted into every Accrington Observer.

I got my paper this morning and there wasn't a flyer in it so can everyone let me know whether there was one in theirs or not?

How unlucky would it be for mine to be the one paper that didn't have a leaflet in?

My copy of the Observer had a mela flyer in it.
I get mine from the paper shop in Ossy, opposite the Town Hall.

Re: Flyers in the Accrington Observer

from my experience with delivering papers when i was a kid....the shops get the papers and get the leaflets/flyers seperate and have to put them in themselves, if the papershop owner can't be bothered doing that then they dont get sent out, i dont think it will be the Observers fault if this is so, the blame is on the papershop

I thought it was part of the production process - where's Neil when you need him (probably still swanning around Tesco)? He'd know!

I know wi the sunday/sat dailys Gayle the magazines are put in by the newsagent, cos ive had to ask where it is a couple of times. n the guy has got it from behind the counter, so i tend to think flashys right, its wether the newsagent can be arsed or not.

They are automatically inserted like you say Gayle. If you look at the paper you will see it is not folded in half, the front of the book over laps the back by about 1/2". This is so the inserting machines can open the book and place the insert inside before closing it again.

I would contact them ASAP and inform them that many of the copies sent out are missing your flyer.

Inserts are a big revenue stream for newspapers so I would expect them to do it properly. Typical of the Mirror they can't even get that right
