British Teenager Loves her Grand Dad and Stamps

Reporter Ben James writes on the Plymouth, England's Herald website," If you asked an average teenage girl what their hobby is you may not expect them to say stamp collecting.But then Charlotte Smith is not an average teenager."

"Some would wonder how a girl of only 15 finds her way into the world of philately in the first place, but Charlotte's reason lies close to her heart," pens James.

According to the article Charlotte, who is still too young to be a full member of the Plymouth Philately Society, accompanies her 78-year-old grandad John once a month.

"She is the youngest member with some others being more than 60 years her senior. But she says the age difference doesn't bother her Charlotte added: "It's not a problem at all. I get on with everyone really well, because they're all quite like my grandad; they're his friends,"  writes James in the piece.

"It's like one big family, really. It's a really good club and I'd recommend it to anybody, of any age."
