Next stamp issue: Forests, 13 August 2019

The next stamp issue depicts six of Britain's forests.  We have received the first supplies of the stamps today, so we might expect the FDCs to be shown on the usual websites quiet soon.

However, although the issue date is less than a month away, the embargo date has yet to be advised.  I expect now that the Curious Customs are out of the way the media office are trying to work out when to take their summer holidays and still be available for the publicity for the launch of these stamps.

Meanwhile here's the website for the Forestry Commission the government department responsible for many of the United Kingdom's forests.

More details about the stamps and other products when we are permitted to provide them.

    2. More than possible. I'm away now until after the York weekend, so keep your eyes peeled for news.

  3. Didn't have much choice but to release a Women's miniature sheet, can you imagine the female furore if the men got one and they didn't.
