Saturday 3rd November turned out to be a fun morning for our first ever letter writing social for kids!
Four young and eager letter writers joined us down at Trinity Centre to get creative and put pen to paper. Each one was challenged to send out at least one letter of thanksgiving and all rose to the challenge beautifully.
Together they sent a whopping 14 pieces of mail out to a total of 4 different countries all of which were posted by the writer themselves into Trinity Square’s very own postbox, Box No. 11.

We ended the meeting with a reading of Tibs the Post Office Cat a sweet story set at the time of Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation in 1953 and based on the real life post office cat that worked at the Mount Pleasant sorting office in London. Young Tibs is hired to catch the pesky mice that keep nibbling their way through all the letters, but instead he befriends them with wonderful results. Highly recommended!
