LIAM Mulvin, the former Farnham postie, returned to his hometown last week to launch his book ‘Don’t Worry He Doesn’t Bite!’ at The Museum of Farnham’s Garden Gallery.

In a series of short essays he shares his experiences as Farnham’s best loved postman, detailing the wildlife, weather and other amusing incidents he comes across as he crosses hills and fields to deliver the mail to his rural customers.

The launch was packed with old colleagues and customers who fondly remember him from his rounds in Farnham.

“I started in Farnham in 1972 and left 39 years later,” said Liam. “You couldn’t have asked for a better place to work.

“We would go out in the evening and go straight into starting work at 4.30am the next morning.

“The banter was amazing.”

He was known for his cheerful attitude and acts of kindness, and when he transferred to a different post office in Cornwall he was missed in Surrey.

Liam has been very happy in Cornwall where he has lived for six years but was glad to be back in Farnham for a few days.

“Every time I come back something has changed. I’m sure there was a police station around here somewhere last time I came.”

‘Don’t Worry He Doesn’t Bite!’ is available now in bookshops and online, published by Merlin Unwin Books (RRP £12).
