Stamp col­lec­tors had a first class time at a fair.

It was held by the Maid­stone and Mid-Kent Philatelic So­ci­ety and peo­ple from across the county went to Ayles­ford Com­mu­nity Cen­tre.

As well as be­ing one of two fairs held an­nu­ally by the Kent Fed­er­a­tion – the par­ent body over­see­ing philatelic so­ci­eties in Kent – it of­fered an op­por­tu­nity to wel­come new fed­er­a­tion pres­i­dent, Mar­cus Sher­woodJenk­ins. He is a mem­ber of the Maid­stone and Mid-Kent branch and will now hold this po­si­tion for two years.
