We are pleased to announce that One of Kent’s leading independent professional booksellers has agreed to provide sponsorship for the KFPS website. ‘The Bookmark’, a well known feature of Rainham Shopping Centre for some 27 years has, as one of their community aid projects agreed to sponsor the KFPS website.
The Bookmark has for many years run it’s own charitable programme of assistance to selected local organisations promoting education and providing access to books for the disadvantaged throughout Kent. Their particular focus is education for all ages with a particular emphasis on practical support for the disadvanteged. The promotion of philately as an accessible and educative hobby open to all ages and budgets falls squarely within the remit and we are delighted to partner with them.
No stranger to collectors or philatelists ‘The Bookmark’, a local agent for Stanley Gibbons and purveyor of fine quality new and second hand books to several generations of Rainham residents has agreed to become our first commercial sponsor. They will be providing a donation to help support the website and more importantly the services of their own qualified software engineer to back up our existing webmaster.
Naturally enough we would encourage those of you who have not yet visited this little gem of a shop to pay a visit, they carry a huge range of stock across all genres with a particularly good range of history books and a lot of quirky oddities. They are also able to order in most of the Stanley Gibbons range of products at a discount on RRP. We are informed that the best time for a philatelic visit is on a Sunday when their resident philatelist is in attendance and you can speak to an expert.
The bookmark is located at 15c Rainham Shopping Centre, rainham, Kent, ME8 7HW just opposite Boots the Chemist and within 2 minutes walk of the shopping centre car park. opening hours are 09.30-17.00 Monday to Saturday and 10.00-16.00 on Sundays. Besides books they also stock a range of ready matted antique prints for that more unusual present and a small eclectic and constantly changing range of collectables.
If you or your organisation would also be interested in helping KFPS please get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
