It can be very hard to find a post box in Brussels. If we do not use them -we lose them. We choose this box as it is near the historic Bourse and on the route of the Annual Brussels Saint Patrick's Day Parade of the Nations & Regions in March. Please post your cards in a post box that is little used in your neighbourhood and help save it!!!! Dit is de lancering van een nieuw jaarlijks Iers in Europe Association project om meer betrokkenheid tussen burgers in Europa te bevorderen en de betrekkingen tussen Europa en de rest van de wereld te helpen groeien. Het heeft tot doel de wijken, dorpen, steden en regio's van Europa te promoten. Het is ook bedoeld om het erfgoed, de kunst, de cultuur, de sociale en sportactiviteiten van Europa te promoten en te benadrukken dat lokale postkantoren lokale economieën moeten ondersteunen om ansichtkaarten met een lokaal thema tegen betaalbare prijzen op te slaan. Het is bedoeld om personen van alle leeftijden aan te moedigen postkantoren te gebruiken en postbussen goed te positioneren om de lokale gemeenschappen te dienen. U wordt uitgenodigd om tijdens deze week een speciale inspanning te leveren om een ansichtkaart te schrijven naar een vriend en/of familielid en hen tussen 1 en 8 augustus op de hoogte te stellen van 'European Post a Postcard Week'.
