Nottingham couple sent sausage-themed postcards back to their favourite city cafe - the Silly Sausage - while on five-week holiday
A COUPLE who sent kooky postcards back to their favourite Nottingham café during an extended summer holiday revisited the eatery yesterday to see their efforts in pride of place.
Lynn and Peter Adgar spent five weeks touring Singapore, Australia and Hong Kong and sent a personalised sausage-themed postcard back to the Silly Sausage Café, in Cattle Market Road, from each place.
The café's walls are covered in a variety of different pictures of sausages and it has now added the couple's efforts.
Lynn said: "The reason I started sending the cards was because we got to know the café fairly well through taking my grandson there after he goes swimming. While on holiday, I thought 'wouldn't it be fun if we sent a picture from each place that we go to?'"

The couple took a postcard from each holiday destination and painted a sausage character on the blank side, each dressed in the particular country's national dress.
The postcards also all include a message, for example a card from Australia, featuring a sausage wearing a hat with dangling corks and holding a can of beer, reads: "Plenty of shrimps on the barbie, but no sausage in sight."
Lynn said: "The café didn't know us that well but they have really embraced the idea – even the postman was getting excited delivering the cards."
