Annual Philatelic Weekend - 2021 - CANCELLED

It is with great regret that the regular weekend meeting planned for March 12 to 14 2021 has had to be cancelled. Current guidelines do not allow such events to take place. There is too much risk to members to contemplate such a meeting and the position some months ahead is unknown. Meetings will resume as and when circumstances and government rules allow.
