Isle of Wight Meetup SATURDAY 10th AUGUST 2024

How did the hunt to look for a good place for writing postcards go @TinyMouse Laura go?

I hope if you found a location outside that has shade?
I’m not able to sit in the sun, as I overheat. But can sit outside with some shade.

Smiles Seaview :partly_sunny:

In the end I didn’t venture into Sandown so research is purely internet based but let’s go to The Beach Cafe.

It’s indoors, but with beach and pier views and has good reviews on TripAdvisor.

Postcard design coming soon, but looking at prices to print they will be 30p each. Feel free to let me know how many you would like (or wait until you see the design). :smiley:

Here is the meetup card. The view is of Sandown beach and Sandown pier taken from near to The National Poo Museum (Small edits might be needed when sending it to be printed).

Please let me know how many you’d like :slight_smile: Costs vary on how many are printed but it highly likely to be 30p per postcard.


Hello, dear postcrossers!

Hi, thank you for inviting me. I am also living on the island. Any place related questions just ask. Yes 10 meetup cards for me too. What time are we meeting?


We will meet at 1pm outside The National Poo Museum in Sandown,

The museum is on top the cliff, in the old toilets next to the (battery?? - the old fort)

Google Maps once tricked me into thinking it was on beach level… but it’s not :smiley:

@Bayrisches-Madl @seaview @RoFish How many of the meetup postcards would you like?

Please let me know by Thursday 18th July so I have time to get the postcards printed. :blush:

*These will be what we sign at the meetup, although the museum also makes their own fab postcards and local shops will have lots of Isle of Wight postcards.

This is an example of the postcards they have at the museum. They had a few designs when I visited last year with different animals

@TinyMouse , I’ll only take 5 meetup cards, please. I still have plenty of normal IoW postcards that I bought over the last few years.

Thank you for organising the cards and the meeting, my flight is booked and I am already looking forward to seeing you all
