Northwich Philatelic Society - Cheshire

Post by JonEboy »

Northwich Philatelic Society holds meetings regularly between July and May each year, with a break in the summer to allow us to all go off to foreign climes and send back philatelically contrived covers from foreign lands :D .

The season starts with a summer barbecue which is traditionally held in July and features a Chairmans evening, two members evenings where we can display pages and two auctions a year.

The 2013-14 season schedule is as follows:

2013
20th July : Summer Barbecue
10th September : Mr Les Pearcy – Czechoslovakia – pre stamp to World War II
8th October : Mr Mike Roberts – Philately will get you nowhere – the pitiful waste of life of a Chronic Stampaholic
29th October : Mr Richard Stock – Southern African Campaigns
12th November : Annual General Meeting and mini auction
10th December : Chairman’s Evening
12th November : Annual General Meeting and mini auction

2014
14th January : New Year Party and Annual Competition
11th February : Mr Howard Hughes – The Maltese Cross
11th March : Dr David Sigee – Development of the Royal Mail
8th April : Mr John Mayne – Togo – The First German Colony 1884-1914
29th April : Annual Auction
13th May : Members Club Evening, Letters M&N (an up to six sheet display)

We have recently gained a website which can be found here

Anyone if welcome to attend any or all of our meetings and full details are on the website.

Jon.

Is the Northwich Society still affiliated to the North Western Federation?

http://nwfedps.org/

If so, they have a broken link to Northwich. Contact the webmaster - email address at bottom of NW Fed page.

Cheers - Dave.

Thanks Dave, they are still affiliated however....the link previously went to a page for the late Dr John Wriggles who sadly passed away prematurely last year. I guess they didn't know what to do other than to remove it. I'll drop them a line now.

Thanks

Jon

EDIT: Just checked and they are all dead links :shock: Looks like a sitewide problem to which they are now alerted!

Jon, I live too far away to become a member, but there are a couple of meetings I might like to attend, next year, weather depending.

So, where and at what time do you meet?

Incidentally, Richard Stock's exhibit is just marvellous. Has he given you his Sudan campaign presentation?

Hi Alan,

Yes, Richard was brilliant and one of the best speakers this season so far. In terms of meetings you will of course be welcome, just check out the "how to find us tab" on the website for the location and they all start at 7.30pm.

If you are coming the mail me and I'll meet you beforehand.

Oh and it was only the Boer presentation, maybe Sudan next time?

Just a quick bump to let people know that the meeting next Tuesday evening is the Annual Auction and there are usually one or two bargains to be had on the night.

If anyone fancies coming then the directions are on the website http://www.northwichphilatelicsociety.co.uk/ along with photos from all the recent displays we have had. The last one was Togo - The first German Colony by John Mayne and he turned up with the same display I'd seen at spring Stampex which was quite a treat.

All are welcome. :D

It's been a while since I bumped this thread but probably worth doing again as at our AGM last week I was installed as Chairman for the year :shock:

What this means is that apart from having to chair the meetings for a year I also have to put on the Chairman's Evening in December which is traditionally either a presentation from me on any subject I like or I can invite anyone to come and share their collection.

If, therefore, anyone reading this has about 12 frames (144 sheets) they fancy sharing with our members on 13th December please feel free to message me directly.

On the off chance that most of you are too far away to help, please feel free to bump this thread on Philately and the Internet which may have to form the backbone of what I show.

Anyone who is anywhere close to Northwich at any point in the next year, please feel free to check out our meeting dates and if you are in the area you would be given a very warm welcome.
