Amersham & District Philatelic Society


The Society meets fortnightly in Amersham on Thursday evenings. Our programme of meetings run  from September to the beginning of June each year.                       

The Society meets at the Old Barn Hall at the Amersham Community Centre fortnightly, and the meeting details can be found on the programme page. The meetings start at 7.30pm and are usually finished by 9.30pm. Most of the meetings start with any club business followed by a Guest Speaker and takes the form of an illustrated display. We have a half time break to take a closer look at the display and have a chance for a coffee and a chat too. See our separate programme page.

Annual subscriptions are only £5.00.  and due on 31st March each year. Members        are asked to complete a renewal membership form so that the Membership Secretary can keep the contact details up to date.

Our next auction will be held on May 5th with the same format as previously. A fully  descriptive catalogue will be available approximately four weeks before the date of the auction and will be sent out to all members, alternatively electronic copies will be available. There will be an opportunity to view lots beforehand. See our separate auction page.

The Society runs a comprehensive packet circuit, with a wide variety of good quality material which is competitively priced. See our separate packet circuit page.

The Society has a small library which consists mainly of Stanley Gibbons catalogues including some SG specialised catalogues covering GB. We also have four signascope watermark detectors, one ultra violet lamp for checking phosphor bands etc, and a Perfotronic perforation gauge with a digital read out. These are available for members to borrow for short periods. For further information please contact the Secretary
