Meetings and Activities for 2021
The Newcastle Philatelic Society was formed over 100 years ago during 1918. It has met continuously ever since, except for a short break due to Covid-19 restrictions.
The Society promotes the enjoyment of the hobby of Stamp Collecting for all in the Newcastle area, whether a junior, adult beginner or an advanced collector. Many people return to the hobby of stamp collecting after they have retired, when their family has grown up and they have more time on their hands.
The Newcastle Philatelic Society has two meetings each month. Both are open to society members and to visitors.
Second Thursday of the month, commencing 2.00pm – monthly meeting, with a very short business session, raffle and lucky door prize, a display of stamps or postal history, followed by a short auction of donated material. Refreshments available after the meeting. Concludes 3.45 to 4.00pm.
Third Wednesday of the month, commencing 2.00pm – social meeting, a display of part of a member’s collection, followed by refreshments and lots of social interaction. Concludes 3.30pm to 4.00pm.
Meetings are held at the Pasterfield Community Centre, Horizon Drive, Cameron Park. This is a modern complex with meeting rooms, plenty of car parking at the door and level access. See below for instructions on how to find the Pasterfield Centre.
Our society auctions have been on hold due to Covid-19 restrictions. Good news – our first post-covid auction is on Thursday 20 January, viewing commences 6.30pm and the auction from 7.15pm. Venue is the main hall at the Pasterfield Centre. Don will notify all the past attendees (by phone, email or word-of-mouth) of the new auction date.
The society is overseen by a small committee, comprising President Greg Laidler, Secretary John Moore, Treasurer Tony Walker, Operations Don Catterall, Newsletter Jim MacDougall, Social Meeting Ron Davis and Carol Davis, Hospitality and Catering Roger Eggleton, with help from Don Rutherford and Ed Burnard.
