Postman makes special delivery to Dolly Parton

POSTMAN Clive Loveday made a special delivery to Dolly Parton.
The Swindon postie was entrusted with delivering the first book to children at the UK launch of the country singer's Imagination Library.
The US singer, pictured right during a patriotic gig, was in London to present books to youngsters from Rotherham who are the first on the scheme, which provides a new book each month from birth until the age of five.
A person in the local community funds the cost of the books, while Dolly Parton's foundation covers the overheads.
Mr Loveday, of Hythe Road, Old Town, was invited to deliver the books because he is Royal Mail's community postman of the year in recognition of his work teaching young people the dangers of alcohol.
