Stamp club’s open invitation

THE Stamp and Postcard Society starts its new season next Wednesday taking the form of an open meeting.

Hoping to attract new members, there is no scheduled speaker, the local philatelists are looking for those with an interest in the hobby, be it stamps, covers or postcards.

Anyone who does come along will be shown how their collection can be improved upon and how to get more enjoyment from it.

Discerning stamp collectors don’t amass as many staps as possible, their aim is to study them, learn history and geography from them and arrange them in a manner that tells a story from what is depicted on them.

Make a note: the first meeting is in the Buccleuch Hotel on Wednesday, September 19, at 7.30pm.
