Dear Friend...

It’s summertime – and the livin’ is getting easier – and although few of us will be planning to travel far this year, we would like to revive the dying art of writing postcards for our latest “keeping in touch” project.  We all know that   it has been harder to keep in contact with everyone these last 15 months, especially with those whose contact has narrowed significantly.

 

We would like to invite all ages to get writing  - a postcard can be sent from anywhere, even from home! We can support local businesses who sell postcards, buy them online or even create our own miniature works of art. The Community team can also supply cards if you would like to write but can’t get out to purchase them. We are hoping  for cheerful greetings beginning “Dear friend”, written on the usual left-hand side of the postcard which a team of volunteers will then address and stamp with “ greetings from NK” .  We would love to reach the 550 people in the parish who would enjoy receiving a postcard,  including those in the local care homes and sheltered housing, so if you could write half a dozen cards or more we could reach our target.  

Completed cards, in a single envelope marked “NK postcards” can be posted through the letterbox at NK between now and Sunday 11th July or uplifted from you at home if you can’t get out.  Our team of volunteers will then deliver them. 

If you would like to help please contact kirsteen7@btinternet.com or telephone 942 7603 or leave a message with the church office – 942 8827 - to say how many cards you plan to write.  

 

If you can volunteer to address the cards – probably a couple of hours spent spaced out in the church hall – or to deliver them, it would be wonderful to hear from you via the same channels. 

We are hoping this will create a little network of community at a time when we are still careful about travel and about meeting other people.
