Amersham & District Philatelic Society


Updated on 27th January 2021              With the continuing lock down for the time being all of our meetings have been cancelled due to the Coronavirus Pandemic.   We will advise members in due course regarding the resumption of meetings.

PACKETS  If you are a recipient of the Packets please check the Packet Circuit page.

AUCTION  One of our members, Mike Consden, is organising a small Auction on line. Details can be found on the Auction Page. Please take a look and support this as if it is successful we would like to organise further items for  Members during the period where we are unable to hold meetings.


In normal times the Society meets at the Old Barn Hall at the Amersham Community Centre fortnightly, from September until June. 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.     During the temporary period we are not meeting it has been decided to waive the annual subscription.

We hold three auctions each year and provide a fully descriptive catalogue and the 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
