I take in all the parcels of this part of the street” says Thelma, 81 in Horfield, Bristol. Parcels are the new neighbours’ glue as they create a chance for a chat when parcels are handed over.

Delivery staff say that more than half of all parcels are left with neighbours who are mainly older people. This is because they are at home more than younger people who are buying things online to be delivered at home when they are out.
