How the Stamp Active Network can help you!

Our website's section 'Club Leaders' has helpful ideas for club organisers on activities, competitions and how to plan a junior stamp day.

Check out other sections of the site, which are designed specifically for young collectors, to keep yourself up to date with the latest news and events.

The 'Kidstamps' section is designed as a website 'club' for juniors to enthuse and stimulate them in their collecting endeavours.

The Stamp Active stand at Spring and Autumn Stampex, at the Business Design Centre, Islington London offers lots of fun activities including lucky dip, tombola, auction etc., for junior collectors. Everyone is welcome!

Competitions for young collectors - the Stamp Active competition held at Spring Stampex is for beginners and those aged up to 16. Check out Rocket News for more information.

The British National Youth Championships are held at Autumn Stampex and are designed for more experienced juniors who have competed previously in Stamp Active or county competitions and are developing their collections.

Rocket News gives the latest information on competitions as well as useful links to other websites.

Our aims are:
- to promote stamp collecting as a fun-filled educational activity to youngsters.
- to encourage young collectors who want to learn more about stamp collecting.
- to support organisers of junior stamp clubs around the U.K.
- to liaise with other philatelic organisations around the world in the encouragement of young collectors
