The time period for when reduced rate Christmas stamps can be sent in the Bailiwick of Guernsey has been extended this year.

From 2 to 22 December 2011, letters sent within the islands can be sent with a special 31p stamp, instead of the current 36p cost.

Last year the stamps could only be posted during a nine-day window.

George Jennings, director of operations at Guernsey Post said: "Due to popular request, we are extending the dates."

"For many of us, exchanging cards with family and friends during the festive period is a much-loved tradition," he added.

The 2011 Guernsey Christmas stamps feature wintry scenes taken by local photographers.
