Amersham & District Philatelic Society


Updated on 22nd March 2021        Following the Government’s published proposals for the easing of the current lockdown restrictions we are hoping to resume our meetings in September.  We are waiting to hear from the Community Association when this will be.

PACKETS  The Packet Circuit is due to restart and the end of March, see the announcement on the Packets page.

MEMBERS AUCTION  Following the recent success of the recent on line members auction run by Mike Consden a further auction is planned to be held in May.  Details will appear on the Auction page in due course.



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
