SUPPORT YOUNG COLLECTORS - STAMP ACTIVE NETWORK - 2017.
NEW STAMP ALBUM FROM KIDSTAMPS
Stamp Active, the voluntary group that promotes stamp collecting in the UK to youngsters, has joined forces with the Philatelic Traders’ Society to produce a starter stamp album for children.
The 16 page album allows space for their favourite stamps and additional pages for stamps to be collected by country or theme. It will be given to all young visitors to the Kids Zone at Spring and Autumn Stampex and to members of the popular Kidstamps postal club free of charge.
Kidstamps is a free postal club for children between the ages of 5 and 19. Once registered, children receive a starter pack of stamps, first day covers and other items. In each pack, there is a voucher for their next pack which they return with a stamp-addressed envelope to receive even more items. Packs are sent out about four times a year. Application forms can be downloaded from the Kidstamps page of the Stamp Active website or picked up at Stampex. Alternatively, write to Stamp Active, 16 Sporhams, Basildon, Essex SS16 5TT with an SAE for a Kidstamps application leaflet.

Stamp Active, the voluntary organisation that promotes stamp collecting to young people in the UK has a new Patron.
Rt. Hon. Alan Johnson MP is a former Home Secretary and was once a postman. He has offered his support to their efforts, saying, “Stamp collecting has given many hours of pleasure to millions of people over the years. It is a remarkable offshoot of Rowland Hill’s most famous initiative combining the appreciation of art, geography and communications in one satisfying pursuit.”
The Chairman of Stamp Active, John Davies, added “We are pleased that Alan Johnson has shown his support to our group. His recognition of the organisation is a real boost to help promote stamp collecting.”
Chairman of the Stamp Active Network, John Davies, said “We are delighted that Buckingham Covers have chosen to feature Stamp Active on their covers. It is pleasing to get anything that raises the profile of youth philately in the UK. I believe that the UK has one of the best programmes in the world but we need financial and other support to keep going. Thank you, Buckingham Covers.”
Their Director, Brian Austin, added “We find too many people are willing to dismiss the interest of children in stamp collecting. Yet when they can share the collecting experience, it still inspires their interest and imagination. We are pleased to recognise and support the work of Stamp Active in the UK.”
