In Romantic

The Post Office in pretty little village of Lover used to do a roaring trade around Valentine’s Day post marking thousands of cards with its unique postal stamp, but 10 years ago the stamp disappeared when the Post Office closed. Over the last 3 years villagers have been providing a special postal service to resurrect their uniquely romantic village postmark and on Sunday 10th February BBC TV’s Countryfile will be celebrating their efforts. From 6th February, the village will have its own pop up Post Office where personal visitors can post their cards and then explore the village and all the houses and other buildings decorated with a variety of different Valentine hearts.  

Organisers are busy planning for a huge increase in orders and are advising everyone to get in now before the rush. All early orders will be held for posting on 11th Feb. Full details of how to get your own cards postmarked “Lover” can be found at Your card once received will be hand stamped by a village “cupid” with the iconic Lover cache stamp and posted to your loved one. All cards will be posted on Monday 11th February. Orders will continue to be taken but are fulfilled on the understanding that the closer the order is to 14th February, the less likely it will delivered in time for Valentine’s Day.
