UNTIL a couple of years ago, I thought the art of letter writing was dying but now I must disagree with those who say this.

I joined the International Pen Friends Club and was delighted to discover that, far from being dead and despite e-mail, the good, old letter is still very much alive around the world.

For a reasonable fee the club supplied me with a list of contacts at home and abroad in my age group and sharing similar interests to myself and all correspond in English so there are few language translation difficulties.

These days I write to pen pals in many countries. I've exchanged news and views, recipes, souvenirs, tears and laughter.

The club is open to people of all ages. For further information please write, enclosing a S.A.E. to Mrs E Hardy, PO Box 71, St Ives, Cambs, PE27 5GL.
