festival fdcs prove popular

The official First Day Covers issued as part of the Summer of Stamps virtual festival have been extremely popular with collectors, with the first pair of commemorative covers featuring the recently released Queen stamps.

in brief

Royal Mail is partnering with London Electric Vehicle Company to trial its new VN5 prototype electric van – based on a typical London taxi cab - for parcel and letter deliveries later this month.
