Postcard finally finds its way

THERE was a happy ending in the NewsMail office yesterday when “Nanny and Poppy Bill” came forward to collect a lost postcard sent by their six-year-old grandson, Jack.

The card was accidentally addressed to V Cees Wholesale Distributors, the wrong side of the train tracks to its intended Woondooma Street destination.

Nanny and Poppy Bill, more commonly known as Bill and Carolyn Beard, were surprised to find their grandson’s postcard in the paper.

“We are definitely happy to have it now,” Mrs Beard said.

“He often sends us postcards when he is away and we always look forward to reading them.”

Mr Beard said the pair would be visiting Jack in Tasmania next Friday and would be taking a clipping from the newspaper postcard search to show him.

“I think they will be surprised,” Mr Beard said.

The pair said they were pleased that V Cees owner Belinda Gregory was thoughtful enough to bring the postcard in.

“It was nice of her,” Mrs Beard said.

“The postman may have known if our last name was on there.”

Mr Beard said he was positive that mail from Jack would not go astray again.

“I think they’ll definitely remember our address from now on.”
