Clwb Cardiau Post Cymraeg 🎉


Oops, I hadn’t been following updates so much - and especially in the months when we were requested not to use the post in Italy (because only a very small percentage of offices and employees were actually active, and very few International flights if at all!).

Even though this method had always seemed more reasonable, I was still stuck with the first instructions to send the first to the one right next in the list and then just pick random ones and/or answer to the cards you’d receive.

While now do I understand correctly, I’m supposed to go down the list?
Ooops! If so I’m going to start from this month! Sorry! :grimacing:


Different opinions / ideas by different people @gisella-albertini that’s all. Send to the next one on the list first and then chose a system you’re happy with.
I send randomly and respond to people who have sent me ones. I tend to send to newbies in the Club as well :smile:
And the best policy in my opinion Is…
The more you send the more you’ll receive


You’re not doing anything wrong @gisella-albertini - but what a lot of us do is send our first one each month as described, then send any others as we feel appropriate - be those answers, random, keeping on going through the list…
The idea of having a bit of regular system is to try and make sure that everyone keeps getting cards - and a mix of regular, answers and random gives a chance to tick all boxes :grin:
Answers definitely good where can (and vital for ‘the more you send, the more you receive’ to be true). Not everyone in the club is on the Forum or using WSP - so some people will only know their card arrived safely if they get an answer back!


Yeah thats what I try to do too, though I want to apologise for the lack of cards sent recently; my city is still in lockdown unfortunately and I didn’t want to risk passing on any lurgy to any other parts of the country. Am missing sending/receiving postcards though so I’ve got a big stack of cards raring to go once we get the all clear!

Cerdyn Post i Draeth Bournemouth

Dydd Iau, 25 Mehefin 2020

S’mae pawb!

Ges i amser arbenning ar traeth Bournemouth wythnos’ma efo fy nheulu! Dw i’n teimlo’n cryfach ar ôl cwpl o ddiwnodau ar y traeth! Roedd hi’n bron yn rhy boeth i mi ac ron i’n synnu at cymaint o bobl roedd yno! Ar ôl i rai pobl wedi wneud i trio cadw ni’n bant roedd yn hyfryd i fod mewn fintai mawr eto. Roedd yn perffaith - doedd neb yn poeni am olchi dwylo ac roedd pawb yn agos iawn at ei gilydd! On in wrth fy modd i gwrdd â chymaint o bobl newydd yn un lle! Roedd yn profiad anhygoel!

Wrth cwrs roedd rai bobl sy’n meddwl eu bod nhw’n clyfar yn trio spoilio popeth ac yn cwyno fel arfer – ond stwffio nhw! Beth sy’n bwysig ydy bod pawb yn mwynhau eu hunan ac yn rhannu popeth, ynde?

Felly, paid â bod yn dwp, beth am ddod tro nesa? Dw i’n edrych ymlaen at gwrdd a chi!

Hwyl fawr,



Beautiful writing. Diolch vikta

Noticed today - UK postage rates for international mail go up September 1st (to £1.45 for up to and including 10g for all zones)…

Domestic rates aren’t changing :slight_smile:
