Advice on collecting, how to look after your stamps and information about specialists and societies. Plus suggestions on donating your stamps to good causes.

Paul Leonard is a member of the Twickenham & District Philatelic Society and also a Fellow of the Royal Philatelic Society.

face to face meetings are cancelled while concerns over the Coronavirus impact remain

However, if you were a stamp collector in your youth and you still have your stamp collection, why not get out your album, postcards and loose stamps and enjoy it again?

Whether you are in ‘self - isolation’ or at home with others, postage stamps are a wonderful way to relax and enjoy what was ‘the world’s greatest hobby’’.

For Example

An example of a Queen Victoria stamp used in London & a similar stamp overprinted for use in Zululand
OR
A postcard used in 1899 showing Richmond Hill & sent to Germany
OR
A Postcard sent from Truro, Cornwall to Clydesdale Gardens in Richmond

Enjoy your Stamp Collection Again !
