Guernsey Post is delighted to announce that it is vending Post & Go stamps from the Guernsey Information Centre, North Esplanade, St Peter Port, until 7 October 2018.
The philatelic bureau’s new desktop unit (DKU) GG03 will vend the ‘Bailiwick Flowers’ stamps with the unique location identifier “Guernsey Information Centre” overprint, which are available now to Guernsey’s Post & Go collectors as part of the bureau’s Post & Go collection.
In addition to the Post & Go stamps available to existing collectors, Guernsey Post’s DKU will also vend the Bailiwick Flowers Post & Go stamps specifically for cruise ship tourists visiting the island, in liaison with Visit Guernsey. An underprint message on the stamps will welcome cruise ship passengers to Guernsey’s shores, which will be updated each time a ship arrives into port.
Guernsey Post’s head of philatelic, Bridget Yabsley said: – “Although last year’s trial of the Post and Go kiosk located at our Smith Street Post Office was a success and proved popular with existing collectors, we have decided to locate the new smaller GG03 DKU at the Tourist Information Centre for the benefit of visiting tourists.
“We are confident that the new location of a Post & Go machine at the Guernsey Information Centre will prove popular during the busy summer months, particularly with the cruise ship visitors.”
