Philately Will Get You Everywhere!

Ric Carlyon - Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Well, actually it’s flattery that is said to open all the doors, but JPs have an opportunity to stamp their own mark with special postage stamps issued to mark 200 years of J.P. services in New Zealand.

Booklets of 10 stamps are now available for $10 from the Registrar, Roger Brookes.

Kiwi has produced the special stamps in 5 styles which feature slogans such as “Ordinary New Zealanders Providing Extraordinary Service”, "J.P.s – Access to Justice” and part of the Royal Federation’s objective for all J.P.s “Let Justice be done though the heavens may fall”  

The stamps and first day covers were launched at the function at Government House, Wellington, to celebrate the milestone in November, the 200th anniversary of the appointment of Thomas Kendall as New Zealand’s first Justice of the Peace.  They can be used for all postages within New Zealand.

Orders for the stamps may be placed with Roger
