Fending off dog attacks, falling off bicycles
and working in fierce weather have all
been a part of everyday life for Alexandra
man Stefan van Welie.
But after 30 years of delivering newspapers
in Alexandra, he is parking his bike.
Next week will be Mr van Welie's last week
on the job after he decided to move to
Tauranga to be closer to his family.
''I'll miss the paper. I'll miss the town, but
it's time to move on,'' Mr van Welie said.
He began as a paper boy at the age of 10.
Since then he has watched the town
develop day by day and has seen countless
new houses built.
Six days a week he would start his day at
4.30am to deliver The Southland Times and
The Otago Daily Times and once a week he
delivers The Mirror and The Central Otago
''I'll miss talking to the people who wait at
their driveway every morning for their
Mr van Welie said he enjoyed ''ploughing
through the snow'' to get papers delivered,
has fought off ''plenty of dogs'' and had
several serious bicycle crashes.
One crash happened as he was travelling
too fast down Bridge Hill and went flying
over the handlebars, ''papers and all'', after
braking too hard.
''I'm lucky I was wearing my helmet, my
bike fell apart,'' he said.
Wayne Soper, Mr van Welie's employer for
the past 15 years, said he was a ''very
dedicated and reliable worker''.
Not everyone would get up early every day
to start work, and he was always on time
and never late, Mr Soper said.
