April’s Meeting

April's Meeting 2019 | The Guernsey Letter Writers Society

Spring is finally here and with it more hours of sunlight to aid us in our evening of letter writing!

We shall meet again next Monday – April Fools Day – and it really is not a joke!

It’ll be the perfect opportunity to write those Easter cards and spring greetings or catch up with a friend via a long letter.

We’ve had 5 new penpal requests since the last meeting – 1 from America, 1 from Australia, 1 from Canada, 1 from New Zealand and 1 from Zimbabwe! So if you’re looking for new pals to write to then check these out next week.

If you plan on joining 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,


{Minutes of Meeting} March 2019

Minutes of Meeting March 2019 | Guernsey Letter Writers Society

There was a great turn out for our March meeting with 10 members present.

The meeting was opened with a reading from Postcard Stories, by Jan Carson. The book is a collection of the short stories she wrote on her daily postcards in 2015.

For the Show & Mail part of the evening Jessica showed off some vintage postcards she had received from her in-laws. Marike opened a letter from some young family members which contained some cute Harry Potter legos, we were all delighted!

A few pen pal requests were read out from across the globe and one match was made with a penpal in the U.S.

Our outgoing mail wasn’t so high this month but there were some wonderfully thick envelopes containing lots of long letters. In total 13 pieces of mail were sent out to 6 different countries this month and all via Box. No. 50 on Route des Monts, next to Delancey Park. The breakdown was as follows:

6 GSY, 3 UK, 4 EUR, 0 ROW


Next meeting is on Monday, 1st April 2019.
