October will soon be at a close which means that the next meeting of the Guernsey Letter Writers Society is not far away!

We will meet as usual on the first Monday of the month which just so happens to be Bonfire Night and we may even have a few sparklers for you!

Don’t forget we also have our first Kids Letter Writing Social coming up this Saturday and it’s going to be a whole lot of fun!

Kids Letter Writing Social!

Kids LWS! | Guernsey Letter Writers Society

Over the past year that we have met to write letters as a group it’s been sweet to hear from members that their little ones are eager to join in and keen to put pen to paper too.

Therefore this autumn, in honour of the first anniversary of GSY LWS and so that we can encourage a new generation of letter writers, we will be hosting our first ever letter writing social just for kids!

We will be meeting as usual in Trinity Centre but at the earlier, more child friendly time of 10:00am-11:30am. The session will mainly be aimed at primary school aged children, but older kiddos are more than welcome to come and join in and help out with the younger kids too if they want.

Amongst the usual snail mail creating that makes up the majority of every meeting there will also be a story and snack time thrown in too.

The children are welcome to bring along their own stationery to use, but we will have plenty to share. We will also have a few names of children in need of letters around the world, just in case your child doesn’t know who to write to.

If your little one(s) would like to join us at our first ever Kids LWS then please RSVP to let us know you’re coming either by emailing gsyletterwriters@gmail.com or simply comment over on Instagram.

A la perchoine,

Jessica

{Minutes of Meeting} October 2018

Minutes of Meeting October 2018 | Guernsey Letter Writers Society

We were delighted to welcome 3 new members to our October meeting, making it a grand total of 12 gathered to put pen to paper.

The meeting was opened with a reading from Letters of Note, a sweet thank you note from Roald Dahl to an imaginative 9 year old fan who had sent him a letter containing a dream.

During the Show and Mail part of the evening Jessica passed around a few letters we had received from other letter writing clubs to congratulate us on our 1st anniversary milestone. She also shared a letter from her pen pal at the CLE Club which included a vintage postcard of Sark that she had found at a paper sale in Ohio.

Three pen pal requests were also matched this evening – 1 from Ireland, 1 from Italy and  1 from the U.S.

In total 30 pieces of mail were sent out this month to 10 different countries from Box. No. 10 at Le Planque on Route de Cobo. The breakdown of the outgoing mail is as follows:

7 GSY, 9 UK, 5 EUR, 9 ROW
