April’s Meeting

April's Meeting 2018 | Guernsey Letter Writers Society

Firstly, apologies for the last minute cancellation of March’s meeting and thank you for your well wishes and understanding. I am now fully recovered and especially looking forward to our April meet up as it will have been 8 weeks since our last gathering.

I am aware that the first Monday of April is in fact a bank holiday, but I am happy to continue hosting it for those of you who are free and keen to fit in some letter writing.

As we didn’t get a chance last month we will attempt to make our own envelopes this month and I’m sure you’ll be excited to see some of the newly released postage stamps that I now have in stock.

If you would like to join us at our next meeting then please RSVP to let us know you’re coming by emailing gsyletterwriters@gmail.com or message over on Instagram.

I look forward to seeing you on Easter Monday at Trinity Centre.
