Your chance to say a big thank you

Let's Talk - - POSTBAG -

From our next is­sue, we in­tend to carry a new col­umn on the let­ters pages which gives you the chance to say thank you.

The idea comes from our gar­den­ing writer, Char­lotte Philcox, pic­tured right.

While out walk­ing her dog, the idea of a sec­tion in the let­ters page called ‘We Say Thank You’ came to her.

“In to­day’s world, there is so much to worry or grum­ble about, so why not in­vite read­ers to send in short mes­sages to peo­ple they’d like to thank?” asked Char­lotte.

Char­lotte then added some thanks of her own:

“Thank you to the peo­ple who empty the red dog waste bins, and put them there in the first place.

To the man, shovel and broom at the ready, seen clear­ing long grass from the edges of a foot­path at the edge of North Wal­sham.

To the dust­bin men and women who work so hard.

To ev­ery­one who takes the time to give strangers a smile or greet­ing when out and about.

To the friend who left a card and large bar of choco­late by my front door, when I was go­ing through a dif­fi­cult time.

To the four, male 30-some­thing cy­clists who tore past me, fol­low­ing which I over­heard this brief, shouted con­ver­sa­tion: “She’s not bad - for an older bird.” Charm­ing, but it made me laugh for ages.”

So if you have any­one you think de­serves a thank you please, in a max­i­mum of 100 words, email your thank you let­ter to let­stalk@ ar­ or post it to Let’s Talk let­ters, Prospect House, Rouen Road, Nor­wich, Nor­folk, NR1 1RE.
