Our exchange packet secretary, Dave Bird organises two packet circuits with over 40 members participating, covering the areas in Amersham and Chesham, Wycombe, Kingshill and Prestwood, and Great Missenden through to Aylesbury. Dave will always welcome any new books to be included in the exchange boxes, so if you have any material to be included please contact him direct.
Packets are started on different circuits and the circuits are also reversed so that members have equal chance of receiving newly issued packets. Buying through the packet is a good way of filling gaps in your collection with a wide range of material on offer including GB, Commonwealth, foreign (old to modern) and thematics and covers. Most of the items are priced competitively.
Collectors accumulate a substantial number of duplicates and unwanted material and the packet offers a good way of selling some off. The club holds a stock of packet books, sold at 20p each to facilitate your sales. In addition we have several contributing to the packet circuit from outside the local area which helps to maintain a vast variety of items for sale.
