The way stamps are issued is changing, with Royal Mail introducing a new barcoded stamp.

Royal Mail explained: "Following a successful national trial we will now be adding unique barcodes to all our regular ‘everyday’ Definitive and Christmas stamps."  Definitive stamps are the regular stamps that have HM The Queen on them.

You can carry on using any non-barcoded stamps you have until 31 January 2023. For most people that will mean they have time to use up any of the old stamps they have before that date and you don’t need to swap anything out. 

If you need to your non-barcoded stamps can be exchanged for the new barcoded version through the Stamp Swap Out scheme. The Scheme opened on 31 March 2022. To swap out your stamps, simply complete one of our Stamp Swap Out forms and send it back to us along with your non-barcoded stamps." The step by step process for doing this is explained below.  Read more

Men's Mental Health Week runs next week.   According to Rethink Mental Illness charity, UK men are “three times as likely to die by suicide than women”. Mental Health UK says suicide is the single biggest killer of men under the age of 45 in the country.
Over the course of the week it is hoped that Men's Mental Health will be discussed in the media and help and support offered to anyone in need.   If you are looking for some advice on how to support someone you might be interested in the advice and training offered by the Men's Sheds Association
