metalfury thanks cards

metalfury thank you cards

With Christmas over and 2011 fast approaching it is a good time to start writing those thank you cards for all the nice gifts that you have received.

The metalfury robot thank you cards have featured in a blog written by Poppy Sparkles in an article called Give Thanks.

It can be all too easy after the madness of Christmas and the overindulgence to overlook one’s manners. I have been brought up to always write a proper thank you – not a phone call or a passing comment of thanks, but a handwritten note or letter.

… No matter what your handwriting is like, these lovely thank you cards will ensure your gift-giver is left in no doubt that you appreciate their kindness.

Poppy Sparkles goes on to show a great collection of thank you cards, all available on Etsy

Last week the teeshirts we designed for England Wado Kai Do Renmei (EWKR) arrived just in time for their Winter training course in Crowthorne.

SuperWado Tee with Bruce LeeThe teeshirts are a homage to the Super Dry products and were designed to move away from the very traditional style of teeshirt normally associated with martial arts.

Wado Kai is a style of karate that blends together Okinawan Karate and Shindo Yoshin-Ryu Ju Jitsu into a very effective martial art.

If you’re interested in starting Wado Karate you can contact the association here to find your nearest club:

West Berkshire Council invested more than £1 million on the new centre on the bank of the River Thames to improve facilities for young people from across the district. A charitable trust of regular users contributed more than £300,000 towards the cost of the centre and new equipment. The Greenham Common Trust was also a generous benefactor in awarding a grant of £150,000 to enable the construction of an indoor climbing wall.

The new building has received plaudits from users as well as the wider community for its creative design incorporating an indoor climbing wall, fully accessible facilities and first floor community room with panoramic views over the Thames.
