PLYMOUTH PHILATELIC SOCIETY
The society was founded in 1876 and is affiliated to Wessex Philatelic Federation and the Association of British Philatelic Societies. Today the society enjoys a vibrant atmosphere at meetings. It has a varied and interesting programme of events, including presentations, an annual auction, members displays, annual competition nights, and after the AGM, the committee usually entertains. The club is “forward thinking and backward looking” with a history project in being to discover our roots. See our history to date OFFICERS & COMMITTEE President - Mr D.
