The Royal Mail are launching a design competition for UK schoolchildren to honour heroes, including key workers and others, who have done such great work since the start of the pandemic to help the country through a very challenging period.

To enter the competition visit 

This is only the fifth time that Royal Mail has held a competition like this, and the first time for non-Christmas stamps. A special panel of judges will determine the eight winning designs. The final eight designs will be sent to Her Majesty The Queen for approval before they can be printed and issued.

The competition is now open. Children across Aldridge-Brownhills have until 28th May to submit their entries.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our Postmen and Post woman who as key workers themselves throughout the pandemic have kept the postal service running seamlessly – Thank you to you all.
