will be phased out.
5th December 2013 - On The Cards
Two Horntonians want you to raise money for good causes – one by using Christmas cards and the other by not sending them.
Maggie Higgins collects used stamps for the Royal National Institute for the Blind, so when Christmas cards drop through your letter box,
please don’t just throw away the envelopes. Tear the stamps off with about a centimetre of paper all round, and pop them through Maggie’s letter box.
Meanwhile, Lynn Corke is encouraging Horntonians not to send cards to friends and neighbours in the village.
“Instead, why not sign the communal Christmas card which is now up on the notice board soon and send the money you save to a good cause of your choice,”
she said. “You’ll save a tree too!”
