Observer paperboy proves paper keeps you fit

THE OBSERVER can help keep you fit – and John Insoll is living proof.

The super active 77 year-old may be our eldest paperboy but he can still show the youngsters a clean pair of heels.

John, who has delivered the Stratford Observer for more than ten years, has just completed a 5km charity run.

His secret to staying fit is partly down to his regular delivery route which takes him all around the Shottery.

The former town councillor has lived in the town for more than 30 years and used to teach at Stratford High School.

He completed his recent charity run at Cheltenham Racecourse to help raise money for the Children’s Society.

His final fund-raising total has yet to be confirmed, but John is hoping to reach around £800.
