GB Stamp Day

The ABPS through its Chair, Graham Winters, is promoting the idea of a GB Stamp Day to be held on the 6 May each year. The first consideration is to persuade Royal Mail to produce a stamp(s) commemorating something very British and at the same time each Philatelic Society is being asked to dedicate a meeting during May 2018 to highlight the idea of a National Stamp Day.

The Society has been asked to send Graham a list of subjects Royal Mail should consider for inclusion in this project. You can help by making suggestions to be forwarded for inclusion, so far the following have been suggested:

1832 William Webb Ellis invents the game of Rugby

1895 Rugby League founded

1995 Rugby Union turns professional 

1966 England World Cup winners

2003 England Rugby World Cup Winners 

London Olympic Games, 1908, 1948, 2012

1871 Rugby Football Union founded

1922 Wembley Stadium opened

1923 First FA Cup final at Wembley

1971 Campaign for Real Ale (Camra) founded

1857 Sheffield FC, Worlds oldest football club founded

1951 First National Park - Peak District

2000 Countryside and Rights of Way Act

Plenty of ideas? Fill in the form below and they will be delivered to Neil Ritchie who's collecting the suggestions
