Additional Distribution Points
For a number of reasons, a few streets are missed from our door-to-door rounds, which at this point in time is disappointing for us but unavoidable. However, we do drop  around 2,000 copies of LIFE magazine to over 100 points in and around each town plus dozens of surrounding villages (see link below). If you are unable to obtain a copy please let us know, as we monitor and strive to improve our distribution network.

Delivery Hold-ups
The magazine goes to print towards the end of each month, with delivery commencing from the first Friday of the following month. Factors such as weather can affect delivery – both to us and to our delivery agents but we do our very best to get the magazine out as planned. If your copy arrives later than normal or you have any comments regarding delivery of the magazine, please email us.
