Maybe one of the first casualties of the corona virus in Dumbarton has just been struck down. The young lass who delivers my weekly copy of the Lennox Herald tells me that she will not be doing that anymore because given the coronavirus crisis it’s too dangerous. She and her brother have been delivering the paper for years, but she says that she won’t be doing that in future. And she has given no indication of whom she will be replaced by – if at all. I fear this is another serious blow to the Lennox Herald and wonder if they will be able to sustain the circulation losses this will entain? I seriously doubt it. Editor
