This site is a great resource for those starting out in the hobby. 

Suggestions of additional sites are welcome.

Some further sites are listed below: 

 

Epsom and Ewell Philatelic Society

https://www.epsomandewellphilatelicsociety.co.uk/

Our sister society with whom we have joint auctions has used the lockdown to create a very innovative web-site with virtual displays and a magazine providing interest for Members whilst actual meetings are still prohibited. 

Their site is well worth a look. 

 

Slightly further away from us but still a 'neighbour society' is Bookham.

They have also been experimenting in putting short presentations on their web-site: and these are worth a look. 

They have also created a limited trading platform which is restricted to Members only. 

 

"IN CONVERSATION WITH...."

During this pandemic many collectors have been captivated by the podcasts of Michael Cortese of NobleSpirit and Charles Epting of Harmer in which they discuss the hobby with guests from across the philatelic spectrum.

Charles and Michael have now added to these podcasts with a series of "conversations with philatelists" in the Stamp Collector Magazine.
