WEEKEND WEB: Rare stamp find after charity shop’s appeal

We look back at the Spalding Guardian this week in 2000.

A charity shop’s appeal for postage stamps led to a valuable set marking George VI’s coronation being handed in.

The complete set of shilling stamps from 1937 was brought into Oxfam’s shop in Station Street, Spalding.

They were sent away to be valued and were expected to be sold through a national philatelic auction house to raise maximum cash for the charity.

Terriers Bonnie and Ralphy were off to France - but didn’t need to spend six months in quarantine. The two Skye terriers were among several south Lincs pets whose owners took up the new Passports for Pets scheme.
