YEAR 2020 - 2021:  OUR 93rd SEASON

In 'normal' years we meet on the first Thursday and the Third Friday of each month from September through to June.

We would then have a short break for tea or coffee and a chat at about 9pm. 

However, this is not a 'normal' year!

At the moment we are unable to confirm when we will be able safely to start meeting again. The latest advice from the Government is that this may not be for some months yet. Although we are now hopeful that we might be able to continue using the New Hall of Surbiton Library.

So please watch this space! We will commence our activities as soon as it is safe within Covid guidelines and in a manner which will best suit our membership demographic.  

We will keep the situation under review. Perhaps we might be able to restart meetings from January 2021. We think April more likely, but both these scenarios may be optimistic!

When we are able to resume we are considering changing our meeting pattern with one meeting in the afternoon for one of our monthly meetings, and one in the evening for the other. 

In the meantime we will seek to increase our on-line presence and ensure that the circulation of packets to Members continues. 



At the moment we are unable to announce meeting dates for our next season due to continuing restrictions and our wish to keep all our Members safe.

We are also considering when and how we can reinstate our joint auction with Epsom, Twickenham and Wimbledon which had to be postponed in March.

Our circulation of packets has now started again, however, with subscribers practicing safe distancing and ensuring that the boxes are clean. These are proving even more popular than before as many people prefer to peruse real stamps, look at items they would otherwise think of, and ascertain condition - all aspects that it is difficult to replicate on the Internet sites. 

Moreover, without our meetings to look forward to we are experimenting with our web-site to see if we include more items that might interest our Members (and of course, any visitors to our site).

Please scroll down on our 'home' page where instead of our usual notes on our most recent meetings we will show philatelic items and mini-displays from our Members that might be of interest. 

Also note that on the site we will continue to add to our existing rather serendipitous approach to items and articles about stamp collecting and philately, and have also created new pages on the philatelic journals that some of us like, and our growing list of well known people who either are, or were, collectors of stamps.
