Invercargill is celebrating hosting rugby teams from Scotland, Argentina, Georgia and Romania, by giving out free postcards of New Zealand’s most famous Mayor, Tim Shadbolt.
The postcards feature a caricature of a rugby playing Mayor Tim, with the words “Greetings from Invercargill, NZ – Wish You Were Here”.
The free cards are available from Monday 5 September and can be collected from the Invercargill I-Site, ICC Help Desk, Bluff Service Centre, Invercargill Public Library and retailers around town.
Council’s Communications Manager Eirwen Tulett said the postcards were a follow on from the very popular free Christmas cards that the city gave out two or three years ago.
“Numbers of the free Mayor Tim rugby postcards are limited, so be in quick to get a few to send to friends and family.” she said.
