The forthcoming national postal strike by the Communication Workers Union is likely to disrupt delivery of Farmers Weekly to subscribers.

At this stage, it is not clear what the full implications of the strike will be for the magazine, but we apologise to readers in advance for any delays experienced.

Efforts have been made to investigate alternative distribution methods but they depend on Royal Mail for the final delivery. Farmers Weekly will be producing digital versions of the whole magazine, including all content and advertising, during the dispute period.

The digital version will be available by email to all subscribers who provide us with an email address and subscriber number. Simply look out your subscriber number which is an eight-digit number above your name and address on the plastic cover of the magazine. Then call 01444 445 577 or email rbi.subscriptions@quadrantsubs.com quoting the details. We will then begin emailing you the digital edition while the strike continues.

Copies of Farmers Weekly in the shops will be unaffected by the strike and will be on sale as usual every Friday.
