Last Saturday we posted a birthday card to our ten year old grandson.
We handed it in to the post office near Barleston Station at 7am. as there is no pillar box thee.
When it arrived at the destination in Lancashire the stamp had been removed.
The envelope was franked on the back where it could not cancel the stamp.
Why does this matter?
The stamp we used was very special: it was one of the fruit and veg range to which we could add facial features and clothes.
This one was an orange with beady eyes, a bow tie, a moustache and a viking hat.
Our grandson was looking forward to receiving it.
But some unmentionable person in the postal network stole it
How despicable can people get?
