Hi. I am really interested in my two having penpals, either through e-mail or by conventional post. Does anyone have any ideas where to look for safe contacts? Alternatively if you think your children might be interested you could contact us direct and we could chat about it first. my e-mail address is or my wife is                      our children are India (9) and Ted (8) India loves choir and ballet, Ted loves Mountainboarding and climbing. Drop us a line and maybe we could get in touch?

Cheers, Tim and Zena

Hi Gail thanks for your advice. I guess i was thinking more globally than that! We are in the UK and i guess the USA or Australia or NZ would be good culturally. Thanks anyway Tim and Zena

My little boy is 8 and I think he would love to send letters and pictures and such. I tried to email your wife, but it came back undeliverable.

Hi Tamz maybe i wrote the address wrong! Could you try Sorry about that, but thanks for replying! We look forward to hearing from you soon. cheers Tim and Zena
