Newcastle Philatelic Society
The Newcastle Philatelic Society was formed over 100 years ago during 1918.
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. Membership is open to persons over 16 years of age. [read more about the Newcastle Philatelic Society…]
Meetings and Activities for 2020
We have taken the sad decision to cancel NPS meetings for the immediate future. This is in accordance with government guidelines, and common sense. John Moore and myself will come up with some ideas to keep us involved with stamps, and with each other, during this time. If you have any ideas, please let me/us know by email or phone 0418 266 779.
NEWCASTLE PHILATELIC STAMP & COIN EXPO 2020
The exhibition opens on Friday 2 October, and the final day is Sunday 4 October 2020.
