Year four pupils around the island of Jersey have been receiving the latest edition of Jersey Post’s Collectables album, marking the third year that Jersey Post has produced the free stamp album and activity book.

Over 1,000 copies were gifted to children aged eight and nine, together with packets of mixed stamps. The forty-page album, which was  distributed in time for the Easter holidays, explores Jersey Post stamp issues across one year with themes including Jersey Cows, Nigel Mansell and local superhero, Man of Steel. There are illustrated spaces for children to stick their stamps, as well as fun facts, colourful illustrations, puzzles and quiz questions. 

‘The feedback we have received from schools and children since launching the initiative has been really positive and it’s brilliant to see children so enthused about stamps and stamp collecting,’ said Rachel MacKenzie, Philatelic Marketing Manager at Jersey Post.

‘The Collectables album is designed to get children talking about stamps and sharing and swapping with each other and as in previous years, we’re giving away a free packet of stamps with each album so the children can get started straight away. Not only is stamp collecting a fun hobby, it’s also a great way of learning about the Island in which we live and the Collectables album is packed with information about local history, wildlife and culture, all presented in a fun and appealing way.’
