A while back I posted about my daughter’s interest in Barney and the various activities she did related to the Numbers Numbers episode. Sometime later she asked if she could write to Barney and his friends to “make sure they are happy”. She made a card and also chose to send some of her colouring pictures as a present to them.
Unsure where to post it to I came across the website for a holiday village in Cork, Ireland called Trabolgan Holiday Village (http://www.trabolgan.com/) and decided to post it there. I would like to say at this point that I have not (YET!!) been here and we of course had no expectations as to what response we might get from them, although I know she was hoping for a reply of some kind. She was certainly not disappointed! In fact she could not have been more excited and we all found the kindness and thoughtfulness really quite overwhelming.
They even emailed pictures of Barney holding her letter and a sign saying Thank you! We were all very touched by all of this and they truly went above and beyond what we ever could have imagined in reply. If this was anything to go by, this holiday village will be an exceptional place to visit. We cannot wait to visit Trabolgan and look forward to booking soon!
Thank you to the staff who took the time to do all of this, it means so much.
Please note Trabolgan did NOT ask me to write this blog post, it is simply meant as a thank you for their act of kindness.
