In search of nan and pop Bill

CAN Nanny and Poppy Bill please step forward?

Belinda Gregory, from the V Cees Wholesale Distributors, received a postcard in charmingly, childlike writing on Monday, but it was intended for someone else.

The postcard, sent from Bicheno, Tasmania, is addressed to “Nanny and Poppy Bill”, but is addressed to the wrong Woondooma Street location.

“I just thought it would be nice to try to reunite it (with its rightful recipient), as they’ve gone to the trouble of sending the card,” Mrs Gregory said.

Mrs Gregory, who is a grandmother, said she knew how much the postcard would mean to the correct owners.

“If it was us, we would want someone to do the same thing,” she said.

The postcard, from a boy called Jack, includes a line saying: “I liked going to the beach and fishing with Daddy, Grant and Ainslie.”

The message also mentions front yard cricket.

If the postcard belongs to you, contact the NewsMail on 4153 8505.
