Vive La Poste - Made in Northumberland hat finally arrives in France!

Inspiration Santiago Calatrava

 I had given up all hope of my latest piece arriving in Chazelles-sur-Lyon, in time for the competition deadline. Indeed I thought my images would be the last I would ever see of it, after it languished for days in the international post room some where between Newcastle Airport and Heathrow.



However thanks in no part to the valiant efforts of Gary at the Wagonway Post Office, Alnwick, the piece finally arrived in Paris, with only about twelve hours to spare. Then an Olympic style dash took place, courtesy of La Poste, and the piece arrived at Chazelle-sur-Lyon with moments to spare before the deadline!
