Alderney: The Wombles

On Monday I got my stamp order from Guernsey including my first two cards from Alderney and two cards from Guernsey.

One of the cards from Alderney shows Alderney Womble. The Wombles are fictional characters in a series of children's books written by the British authoress Elisabeth Beresford. They like to help the environment by collecting and recycling rubbish in creative ways. The characters got especially famous by a TV series of the BBC.

This card with the matching special postmark is limited to 100 cards.

With a nice matching stamp:
50 years of The Wombles (from set of six) (issued 14-02-2018)
with a matching special postmark
