Something new for Chorlton ....................

Now here is a smart idea.

Think of somewhere in Chorlton that is special to you.

It could be one of those iconic buildings like the Lych Gate by Chorlton Green, or the Library on Manchester Road or your favourite pub, and then share the image with a friend.

And for good measure add a message on the back.  It doesn’t have to be an essay just a simple “hello,” wishing you were here” or “come over for dinner.”

Then, and here is the very clever idea send it by post, remembering of course to put a stamp on the card and add the address .

No fiddling with a smart phone, which means you won't have to  remember to save the picture, spell the message correctly and do all this before the battery runs out.

Moreover it avoids that other great pitfall of placing it on social media thereby avoiding the embarrassment of sharing it with people you would rather not know that your favourite place is a post box on Edge Lane

And at the end of all this, your friend, family member or next doors cat will have a permanent reminder of how thoughtful you are.

Moreover the said picture with its message will sit on the fire place or on the pinboard for as long as they want.

It’s an idea that I am sure will catch on.

Peter Topping thinks so, so he has turned some of his paintings into picture postcards and is selling them for just 75p each.  They are available from Chorlton Book shop and this is number 3 in the series.

And ever mindful to capture the moment he is open to suggestions for more iconic images. All you have do is contact him on the link below.
