NOVEMBER 2017 NEWSLETTER
As usual I have chosen a picture of a letter box to accompany this annual reminder of last posting dates for Christmas. This one dates from the reign of Queen Victoria, and is set into a dry-stone wall high in one of the valleys, or dales as they are known locally, in the English Lake District in Cumbria. Still in daily use despite of all the advances in communications and with no houses anywhere nearby – just lots of grazing sheep.
With Christmas and the New Year fast approaching, if you still plan to place an order with us but have yet to do so then we ask that you please do so before the following Royal Mail posting deadlines thus avoiding the usual last-minute rush, especially if you wish us to send a gift on your behalf – thank you:

WATCH OUR GREETINGS CARDS BEING REPRINTED
The video clip in our September email newsletter showing our Isles of Scilly 2018 Calendar being assembled at our printers drew a number of positive comments and so when we recently had to get some of our greetings cards reprinted and matched with the existing cards, I made video recordings which our graphic designer Beyond Media Productions has edited into the following short video clip – I hope you find it interesting to see the care that goes into this process.
Seen on our travels in Scotland:
“Pigs can’t fly” – In fact it seems that they can according to this road sign on the Isle of Raasay off the east coast of the Isle of Skye in Scotland.
In fact no pigs were to be seen anywhere along this road so the mystery continues.
With best wishes,
