We send our warmest congratulations to Molly and Rosie on their marvellous success.

Each of the 24 finalists also had a postmark used in Mail Centres for one day to mark their achievement. Here's the latest we've acquired featuring Morgan Spink from Newark. This postmark was in use in the Nottingham Mail Centre on 30th October as planned.

Because of the short use they should prove quite rare postmarks and, given the typical quality of postmark printing I usually see (and the odd mistake made along the way), acquiring a full set of 24 clearly displayed on cover would be quite an amazing achievement for any collector!
