Maisie has been a very active member of her school stamp club for the last four years and a great help in organising the club’s activities. She is very encouraging to new members, organises and marks quizzes for club members, and, as a members of the local Brownies, encourages fellow Brownies to do their collector’s badge.

The presentation of the trophy was made at Midpex on 6th July by Chris King, the newly-elected President of the Royal Philatelic Society London as well as a former Treasurer of Stamp Active Network.

Unfortunately for the club Maisie is now moving on to the local grammar school and her club leader, Joy Lucas, says that she will be greatly missed. We wish her every success at her new school and are sure that her love of stamp collecting will continue.
