Just an update to the original post:

Member's annual fees have increased to $35 :( from July 1 2014
but the $5 joining fee has been removed :)
so it still only costs $35 to join up.

Sounds well run Brad, Great value Dues, and what a brilliant idea, buying an old church building.

Are the Post Box and Bus Stop still right out front? Perfect for a stamp club!

Someone should suggest that to the clever geniuses at PHILAS here in NSW. :)

They feel a $6 million tin shed, adjoining a large prison, out in the wilderness is far wiser - that the Council have forbidden to be used for what they plan to use it for - as clearly no-one checked first. :lol: :lol:

If this sounds like an April 1 post - WRONG! Read this and weep -

Obviously an unrelated organisation that disappeared into the stratosphere a long time ago. :D
