A nostalgic seasonal poem by TP Concannon remembering days of yesteryear

THEME 'Those English Bells' - a nostalgic poem for the New Year AUTHOR Tom Concannon (TP Concannon) PRODUCT CODE LV07 SUITABILITY ‘Have you heard the bells, those English bells? Have you heard the bells as they peal by night?’ begins this nostalgic poem, which was written by Tom Concannon, one of the founders of the Watermead Apostolate. It could be shared as a seasonal greeting, remembering back to the time that church bells across the land welcomed in the new year (not the fireworks of today's celebrations). A rekindling of nostalgic memories. The full poem appears in Watermead’s autobiography ‘TOM – An English Irishman’ by T.P. Concannon. PRESENTATION The poem is presented on a seasonal picture paper and laminated. SIZE 297 mm x 210 mm (A4 ISO standard paper size) ACCESSORIES An envelope can be provided - but please note envelopes need to be ordered separately at an additional cost. PLEASE NOTE The picture paper used is dependent on availability, but will always be similar to that shown.

WATERMEAD'S LAMINATED THOUGHTS This laminate belongs to the series we call 'Verba', a Latin term meaning "the words". These words can be anything, from inspirational words that people have found and want to share through our apostolate to the reflections and poems that have been given to us by their author - who is usually someone that has been inspired by the work of our apostolate. Some of the orignal poems and reflections that we have been given are also shared through other of our publications, with many used to add a themed message to our mass and greeting cards. (NB We do always check for copyright before sharing words that we have been given and, when found, the author is acknowledged.) BACKGROUND TO THE LAMINATE SERIES Lam’posts was the name first given to this series of laminated A4 thoughts. ‘Lam’ from the word laminate and‘post’ because they were designed as an alternative postal greeting to the usual card. When Watermead introduced 'Lam’posts' it was possible to post an A4 laminate in an envelope for the same cost as posting a letter or greetings card. Changes to Britain’s postal system saw the cost of posting an A4 envelope rise considerably – making 'Lam’posts' no longer financially appealing as a postal greeting. However, they are still very popular, sharing their messages of comfort or greeting – and as a humorous or thought-provoking poster in the kitchen, bedroom, classroom, chapel. And, of course, they can still be posted.
