Woman #1: "Is that Ed’s Local Post or Erectile Dysfunction Local Post?"

Woman #2: "Boy, I’d like to see the stamp for that."



Winner! - Cartoon Caption Competition #1

The winning caption for our specially commissioned cartoon by Paul Munro was submitted by Bob Fritz. Congratulations and thank you, Bob!

The prize is a complete mint set of Canvey Island Local Post (CILP) stamps from inaugural stamp issue of 2010, to the latest stamp issued in November 2014. This valuable prize should be in Bob’s hands by the time you read this.

On a personal note, I encourage more members to participate in similar future features in The Poster. Without membership participation, even short emails, we cannot hope to attract members to our society or new contributors to The Poster. Don’t let the LPCS die of apathy!

The Local Post Collectors Society is devoted to the study, collecting and dissemination of modern world’s Local Posts, stamps and related collectibles and to provide guidance to members in establishing and operating their own Local Posts. The Society aspires to create a feeling of fellowship that unites Local Posts everywhere through correspondence by cultivating opportunities to exchange stamps and collectibles, thereby generating a greater understanding and enjoyment of our hobby.



Why is our logo in red?

It symbolizes the urge to achieve results, to win success and all forms of vitality. It’s the expression of vital force that encompasses all forms of leadership, creative endeavors and development and expansion.
