Colin, many thanks.

Discovered retina had become detached and luckily whipped in for a very interesting (but hopefully not to be repeated) operation. Recovering slowly but prognosis good.

I'm pleased to hear it Paul, best of luck.
Happiness doesn't come from getting something we don't have, but through recognising and appreciating what we do have.

New Issues 2018 - Canvey Island LP

 

The Canvey Island Local Post is pleased to announce the release of new stamps this autumn commemorating three major anniversaries in UK history.

 

N.H.S. 70 Years 1948-2018 (31-10-2018)

The National Health Service was established in 1948 and has changed the lives of generations of Britons. The service continues to offer health care 'from cradle to grave' and although under increasing pressure, remains the flagship institution of social achievement and national pride.

This limited edition of 240 stamps features the man behind the NHS; ex-coal miner and Labour government minister Aneurin Bevan. Alongside his profile is a quote from the man himself which remains even more poignant and relevant today. A limited number of FDC's have been issued.

 

Women's Suffrage Centenary 1918-2018 (01-11-2018)

The CILP is proud to announce the release of this limited edition of 80 stamps to salute the struggle of Suffragists and Suffragettes to achieve women's suffrage. 

 Not only does this stamp commemorate women's struggle in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, but also acknowledges the continuing fight to achieve women's rights and equality in the UK and worldwide in the 21st century.

This is a large format stamp of 79 mm x 54 mm and features a woodcut by Mary Lanchaster of a Suffragette march in 1918. FDC's have also been issued.


WWI Armistice Centenary 1918-2018 (11-11-2018)

This unique commemoration on the 100th anniversary of the signing of the Armistice recognises the significance of the end of the First World War, and the sacrifice made by so many men and women during the war.

Our stamp reflects the solemnity of the event with a stylised yet traditional red poppy. The legend, "Lest We Forget"', refers to the often quoted phrase on Remembrance Day.

 Limited edition of 150 stamps. First Day Covers and postcards have also been released in small numbers.

 

All our anniversary stamps and associated philatelic items will be available from Alpha Thematics on eBid UK  from 12th November, 2018, subject to stock.
