A six year old boy took the time and effort last year to write to the Queen complaining about the lack of play facilities at the park in her Sandringham Estate. He eventually received a letter from the Queen's Senoir Correspondance Officer thanking him for taking the time to write and for his suggestions.
He suggested better play equipment for young visitors be installed, perhaps goalposts, a slide and a roundabout for children. He received a reply from the Queen's office thanking him for his comments and saying she had passed the suggestions to Sandringham's land agent for consideration.
The little boy, Charlie, was pleased with his letter and that it may result in some better park equipment. He and his parents had forgotten they had sent the letter, as the reply came some seven weeks later, but when they saw the envelope with the royal stamp on it, they knew exactly what it was.
Well done to the Mum who encouraged her son to write a letter and well done, Charlie...it's easy to complain about things, but it takes more effort to sit down and do something about it!
