Stamp Active will publish a new “STAMP COLLECTING GUIDE”, to be launched at the London 2022 International Stamp Exhibition. The Guide has been partly sponsored by the Philatelic Fund and the Spear Charitable Trust.

It contains a range of information including how to get started, various aspects of collecting, mounting and writing up a collection, understanding philatelic terms and much more.

The new Guide will be given to youngsters free of charge.

Adults can purchase a copy for £5 (Post Free) from Stamp Active Network, 3 Longfellow Road, Banbury OX16 9LB.

The Stamp Active Network is a voluntary group that promotes stamp collecting for children. Amongst its other initiatives, it runs a free postal club for children, KIDSTAMPS, the national youth stamp competitions, the Youth Zone at Stampex and has published a range of free activity books for youngsters.
