Hi guys,

Yes, it's me and I'm still alive.

Don't know how many of these email addresses are still working but I'm sure I'll soon find out.

I writing to let you know that I am kick-starting the Paper Penguin project again and I hope it will be bigger and better than before.

If you still have your penguins, then that's great great. But don't worry if you don't. After all these years I expect them to have left home by now.

If you do still have your penguins could you update me of their location and situation. If not then maybe a little information of what you think 'may have happened to them'! All the information I will put on the new look website at

I hope you are all well and I look forward to hearing from as many of you as possible.

Hi Guy

Great to hear from you! We did wonder what had happened.

Unfortunately, our wee penguin was put away in storage with some other penguin species, so he hasn’t seen much light of day for several years.

But we opened the cupboard after getting your email, and he popped his head out of the box in interest – we attach a photo to show you

Hi Sue,
Thanks for replying and reuniting the world with Herbie. He's the only Paper Penguin to be on television so far, so he must be missing his public! If you have any ideas for him that I can document on the website that would be great.
I look forward to hearing from you and having fun with Herbie after all this time.
Take care and enjoy the rugby!
