The Village Post Office service will return to Trelawnyd this afternoon.
I have saved posting a gift to a friend until today, so will call down to support the new initiative when the doors to the memorial Hall open at 2pm.
I miss the old post office. I miss going in and having a chat with the flame haired post mistress Jenny, in her tiny post office cubicle that always looked as though a bomb had gone off inside it.
Her slightly panicked style of service was always a source of constant amusement to me.
The new service will be overseen by another village Post Office and only is scheduled to open once a week.
But the service is a start and is a positive step for the village.
I hope the village population will support it.
The Trelawnyd Carnival Committee led by the jovial Val Meelan and Trelawnyd stalwart Alun Hughes has been hard at work organising a wonderful set of Village Based activities for the weekend 2nd and 3rd of June.
A Country pursuits day has been organised for Saturday the 2nd of June, which will include
a gymkhana, dog show ( we will enter Mabel and George me thinks), a clay pigeon shoot, archery, sheep racing ( a first for me) and wellie throwing
Sunday the 3rd of June will be the carnival day, and activities will include a "big Lunch" ( where villagers are asked to bring their own lunches to a shared "communal social event") which sounds a lovely way to meet people new to village events.
I think my History Blog will be shown at one of these events and the Flower Show will have a stall at the other......
Details can be seen at the Carnival Blog Site
I hope the village support both initiatives!

His eye infection has improved but he is still milking the sympathy by refusing his normal cat food and demanding a more expensive but tastier titbit of tinned sardines in a tomato sauce.....
Have A GREAT WEEKEND X
