Christmas came a litte late for one Bury St Edmunds woman ... in fact two years and a month to be precise.

For Brenda Farrow, who lives in Glastonbury Road, received a festive card through her door on Monday which had a postmark of 2015.

“I could not believe my eyes when I saw it,” she said. “The postmark read December 14, 2015, and took all that while to get to me. But at least I have got it now and I will have to treasure it and keep it somewhere.

“It’s very strange. I’ve heard of people losing items in the post but it’s wierd to get it after so long.”

The card was sent from Horringer Court Community Church, which is in the same street where Brenda lives, and had the words: “To Brenda. Peace and goodwill to you this Christmas. With very best wishes for Christmas and 2016 with love from all your friends at Horringer Court Commmunity Church. God bless.”
