February’s Meeting

February's Meeting 2019 | Guernsey Letter Writers Society

February is International Correspondence & Writing Month, InCoWriMo for short, so why not come and kick start your month of letters by joining us at our next letter writing social on Monday, 4th February. We’ll be meeting downstairs in Trinity Centre at 7:30pm.

As usual there will be plenty of stationery supplies to share and postage stamps will also be available to purchase, with lots of new releases including the Year of the Pig stamps.

We currently have around 18 pen pal requests so if you’re looking for someone new to write to then please take a look through the requests at the next meeting.

If you would like to join us at our next meeting then please RSVP to save your place by emailing gsyletterwriters@gmail.com or message over on Instagram.

A la perchoine,

Jessica

Minutes of Meeting January 2019 | Guernsey Letter Writers Society

Five of us gathered to welcome in the new year with letters and despite the lower number, it was a really fun evening.

The meeting was opened with a reading from Seven Little Postmen by Margaret Wise Brown. A sweet children’s book that gives a glimpse into the inner workings of the postal service by following a little boys letter to his grandmother.

There wasn’t too much to show off at this month’s Show & Mail, just a few belated Christmas greetings from other letter writing groups.

We still have a large pile of pen pal requests so if any members are looking for new pals to write to then please speak with Jessica.

A total of 19 pieces of mail were sent out to 10 different countries this month and all via Box. No. 143 on Richmond Avenue in St Peter Port. The breakdown was as follows:

7 GSY, 0 UK, 6 EUR, 6 ROW

Next meeting is on Monday, 4th February 2019.
