Sight for Wight would like to apologise to any Audio Library users in the PO30 postcode area. This week's books posted out on Monday 24th have been returned to us three times, instead of being delivered to yourselves. Royal Mail can offer no explanation as to why this keeps happening and are investigating. No other postcode area appears to be affected and hopefully this problem will be resolved promptly.
