FED-UP residents who get inpatient waiting for their mail to arrive could soon be offered a new postal service thanks to a Lympstone man.
Mark Eassom, of Evergreen Close, said after being made redundant from a job working at electrical company Siemens, he was considering setting up a local courier business.
The 50-year-old would like feedback from people who live in the village and its immediate surrounding areas, who have a post code EX8, as to whether they would use such a service.
Mark said: "Depending on the response I get from people, I will then decide whether to make a go of it. A number of people I have spoken to so far think it's a great idea.
"It also allows me to get out, enjoy the fresh air and keep fit at the same time. It is just in its initial planning stages at the moment."
Mark said if the business was successful he hoped to expand to other areas, such as Exeter.

"It is a topical issue at the moment with what's going on with the post office strikes.
"People have tapped into their problems and are setting up independent courier businesses.
"If it does take off, there is no reason why I couldn't employ one or two people and see how it goes."
Mark said he rode approximately ten to 15 miles every day on his bike and thought of combining the leisure interest into a job.
