Sir Rowland Hill
There is a large statue of Sir Rowland Hill Stamps in his birth town
the creator of the pre-payment adhesive Penny Black in 1840.
the hometown of ‘Rowland Hill Stamps’ with the wonderful inscription:
'TO HIS CREATIVE MIND AND PATIENT ENERGY THE WORLD IS INDEBTED FOR PENNY POSTAGE INTRODUCED IN 1840'
We chose this as our name to signify where we are based, Kidderminster, and how important his achievement was for the community of Philately and Stamp Collectors
