Commenting on the competition, John Davies, Chairman of Stamp Active, said “We are very grateful to all our sponsors or their generous support of Stampex. We are trying to encourage more parents and grandparents to bring kids along to the show. They all have a great fun time but we need to see more here. It is expected that this promotion will also be run for Spring Stampex, so please come along.”
