We recently invited a selection of key workers to Carrow Road to help launch our 2020-21 away kit, and spoke to them about how they've supported the local community over the COVID-19 pandemic.
Chad Blythe is a postman for the Royal Mail and has seen his workload affected by an increase in people working from home over the last few months.
canaries.co.uk: How have you supported the community over the pandemic?
CB: Throughout the pandemic, we've been carrying on as normal, but we have been busier. With self-isolation, sometimes we're the only people that people see on a daily occurence.
canaries.co.uk: So an important part of the job is to help keep spirits up at the moment.
CB: Yes it is. Seeing people on a daily occurence for a little stop and a chat in this dark time can brighten someone's day.
canaries.co.uk: How has it affected your work then?
CB: Our work has slightly changed because we've split shifts, so half of the office come in at a different time to the other half. That's the main change and with the distancing we all now go out in a van on our own instead of two in a van. The core aspect of the job hasn't changed.
canaries.co.uk: What was your response to being invited to the kit shoot?
CB: Quite excited. I've followed Norwich City through the highs and lows for many years, so I thought it would be quite a fun thing to do. It's a nice kit. I think Norwich will do better next season, it will be a bit more entertaining with a few more games to watch.
