The next Annual General Meeting will be held in London, Friday 8th September 2017

We are trying a new venue and meeting at 12.30pm at the Royal National Hotel, where there is an all-day stamp fair. We shall move on to another place for the meeting, so please contact the Secretary if you plan to attend.

Exchange Packet re-launched

The first Exchange Packet for some time has finished its rounds.  This is only available to UK-based members (for insurance reasons) and contains relatively low-priced items. If you wish to join the packet circuit please contact the Secretary.
