The Team Reporter from Stuff

With Covid-19 still a very real risk, people who are unwell are told to stay home, and to keep any sickly kids home too - but what if you don't have any more sick leave owing?

Cassette player wanted

Cam from St Heliers

Recently unearthed a box packed with cassette tapes from college and uni days. Teen son wants to have a listen to this "vintage" collection, even though most of the music can be downloaded online. Anyone have a walkman or cassette radio gathering dust they can part with? Thanks!
