If you’ve started receiving Christmas cards there’s a good chance you’ll have already seen the winning designs in the Royal Mail Christmas Stamps Competition.
The competition gave schoolchildren the chance to create an official Christmas stamp, for only the fourth time in Royal Mail’s 500-year history, and attracted over 200,000 entries from 4-11 year-olds across the UK.
HRH The Prince of Wales chose the two winning designs, by Ted Lewis-Clark, aged 10 and Arwen Wilson, aged 9, to feature on Royal Mail’s 1st and 2nd Class Christmas Stamps respectively. Both winning designs were approved by HM The Queen.
To celebrate their fantastic designs, we helped Royal Mail to decorate post boxes in their hometowns of Frome in Somerset and Dudley in the West Midlands.
The stamps are on sale now from www.royalmail.com/christmas2017
