Medway Matters distribution

The council aims to distribute Medway Matters to every household in Medway.

The council's distributors do not deliver to any property that displays a sign saying the occupier does not want to receive free newspapers or where the distributor could be at risk - from a fierce and loose dog, for example. The delivery agents are also told not to deliver if the paper cannot be fully pushed through the letterbox, as this could put the security of the property at risk.

Medway Matters is not delivered to business properties.
