When Balhousie Antiquary received a lovely email from 11-year-old Rydnn from Dundee looking for a pen friend while self-isolating at home with his family, resident Ian Berrie was delighted to respond.

Ian was so impressed with Rydnn’s email where he told him about his love of football, how he’s a goalkeeper for Dundee United Academy and plays for the school team as well. Rydnn also wrote about his WW2 project at school and asked Ian if he had any memories of the war.

Ian decided to respond with a very special video message for Rydnn. We think they might be friends for life! Click this link to watch Ian’s video.
