Who are we

We are a society for collectors of stamps, postal history and associated interests in the High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire area.

This year we are celebrating our 40th anniversary, and to mark the occasion we will be combining our annual Christmas Dinner and Draw with a special event on Thursday, 6th December at Hazlemere Golf Club.

All members, spouses and friends will be invited along with as many past members as we can find.

It was in 1978 that a club was first formed in the area, known then as the Bellfield and Downley Philatelic Society, but I am told the name was soon changed to High Wycombe & District because some visiting speakers couldn’t find Bellfield or Downley!

The Society now covers a wider area, from Radnage to Holmer Green, and although numbers are down these days, those that remain are an enthusiastic bunch. We still provide a very interesting programme, with Bourses, Auctions, Quizzes and Members’ Evenings, and we have arranged for 4 speakers to visit us during the coming season which starts on 13th September. From time to time we also arrange exchange visits with other societies, and these prove to be very interesting when meeting other fellow collectors.

Membership fees

£5.00 annually, juniors £1.50
Meeting at

St James Church Hall, Plomer Hill, Downley, High Wycombe, Bucks at 7.30pm (see map & Directions)

New members always welcome. Join at any of our meetings or phone one of the contacts above.
