About Us

The Society was formed in 1947, but went into recess in 1953. Unfortunately, there was no records available for the reason. The Society was re-formed in 1976, and has continued until September 2016, a period of 40 years. Lack of funds for public liability insurance, saw us appeal to the local RSL Club for help. They agreed to us becoming an internal club within the RSL Club structure. We are very grateful to them for their continued support of the Society, enabling us to survive for another 20 years. During our 40 years history, we have twice held to North & NorthWest Stamp Convention, been awarded several certificates for “Most Active small club” and praised fits contributions to the hobby.
For 40 years we have held almost continuous monthly meetings, stamp & coin market days every three months, and Annual and monthly trophies and competitions.

A one-page stamp display on a set topic is conducted each month among members. A stamp and coin market is held four times a year at the RSL Club from 10:00am till 2:00pm. The dates for 2014 are 7 March, 9 May, 8 August and 7 November. Meetings are informal and new members are welcome.
