“I want to apologise for the late delivery of this week’s issue,” he said.
“Unfortunatley a national postal strike is out of our control but we have investigated alternative distribution methods – annoyingly none has proved suitable.”
The strike means readers are unlikely to receive their copy of Farmers Weekly before Wednesday 10 October unless the ongoing negotiations between the Post Office and postal workers’ union deliver a positive result.
Distribution of Farmers Weekly through the newstrade is unaffected by the strike, Mr Parker confirmed.
“Readers can also keep up to date with developments in the farming sector here on FWi. We’re doing what we can to make sure the industry is kept abreast of important developments affecting their businesses – particularly during this difficult time for the industry – through the website.”
