New Stamps for 2017!

It's been a while since posting on the forum but we are back!

Local Post stamp collectors will be pleased to hear of the imminent release of several new single and multiple stamp sets for the second half of 2017, from the Canvey Island LP. Stamp images will be posted after each release date.
 
21st August: The first stamp set of 2017 is part of a four set series covering "Endangered Fauna and Flora of Canvey Island", starting with a four stamp set featuring Insects. 

4th September: Due to increasing interest in CILP stamps from overseas, a vintage postcard scene featuring seaplanes will be released as our first Air Mail 'Priority' stamp. 

14th October: A four stamp set featuring Famous Public Houses of Canvey Island, which have been central to island community life.

27th November: To round off the postal year, we have secured an original Christmas drawing from cartoonist Paul Munro to adorn an Xmas 2017 reduced rate seasonal stamp.

Collectors are advised to obtain their copies from our agent, Alpha Thematics, as soon as possible after release. The Public Houses and Xmas 2017 issues are very short print runs.

Empire Flying-Boat Airmail Stamp
4th September 2017

New stamp issued today. The design features an Imperial Airways Empire Flying-Boat with piggy-back S-20 mail carrier.



This image appeared as a generic front-end of a multiview postcard c.1938. Seaside towns would order fold-out views of their area to be attached and a overprinted title on the front image. In this case the original card was overprinted with "Flying high with views over Canvey Island".


Stamp and limited edition FDC available from Alpha Thematics

Famous Public Houses Stamp Set

Canvey Island Local Post (CILP) released it's Famous Public Houses stamp issue on the 23rd October, 2017. It is a four horizontal stamp set featuring Canvey Island 'pubs' that have played a defining role in community life for many decades and in one case, centuries.

The 'pubs' featured in a stylised pencil sketch style are; the Haystack, the Admiral Jellicoe, the King Canute (prior to the 1953 flood known as the Red Cow), and the Lobster Smack. The latter was used by Charles Dickens as the Ship Inn in his 1861 novel Great Expectations. All the other pubs have their own stories and history, both good and bad.

With the imminent demolition and re-development of the Admiral Jellicoe and the closure of the King Canute (formerly Red Cow), it is poignant and timely that the CILP should release this long planned stamp set now.

Unfortunately, it was necessary to omit equally famous or well known pubs and drinking clubs from this issue, such as the old Oysterfleet, the Canvey Club (featured on a vinyl LP cover by R&B band Dr Feelgood), and younger establishments such as the Windjammer of the 1980s, and the Silver Jubilee from 1977. We hope to include these in a future stamp issue.

A total of 45 sets and six First Day Covers have been produced. Stamps and covers (subject to availability) available from Alpha Thematics on eBid UK
