Dear Weltevrede

Remember the days when you would fill pages with words upon words of love and friendship or a story about an interesting day, put them in an envelope with a licked stamp on it and headed over to a post box to send them off to distant loved ones?

Remember the excitement you felt when you saw the postman make his way to your mailbox to deliver your mail? Wasn’t it an awesome feeling opening the envelope, feeling the pages beneath your fingertips and reading what your friends or family had written?

The Dear Weltevrede competition, which was launched in October, takes you back to a time when hand written letters remained timeless, where a simple gesture meant the world to someone else. Up for grabs is our multiple award-winning MCC Phillip Jonkers’ Brut The Ring.

Even if you don’t win the prize, we hope you take the opportunity to recapture some of the nostalgic magic of letter-writing by sharing your stories of growing up with us. In doing so, our wish is for you to celebrate the heritage that has made you who you are today and reminds you that going back to the beginning can often help you find where you need to go.

Our post box closes on 30 November and the winner will be announced on 1 December. For those who do not have postage stamps on hand, you are welcome to email your letters to us at
