Elm Park’s stamps sell out within a week

The latest limited edition stamps have sold out within a week.

The Elm Park Regeneration has created two sets of stamps a year since 2006 -one for the Summer Fiesta, and the second for the Christmas illuminations.

In keeping with this year’s Hollywood theme for the illuminations last month the stamps had a star in the style of those on Hollywood Boulevard, with Elm Park underneath it.

They went on sale the day after the event at Elm Park Florists, Station Parade, for at �1 each or a special sheet of 20 for �100.

Tina Death, co-owner of the shop and member of the regeneration group said: “The stamps sold out very quickly because they are collectibles and limited edition. We have sheets go for �600 on eBay before.

“Stamp collectors love them, and I had orders from Russia and America again from people who love to collect the Elm Park stamps.”

Next year’s stamps for the Summer Fiesta will mark the Queen’s Jubilee.
