Calendar for the 2014-2015 Season

 

To make things clearer, we've colour coded the type of meeting:

 

[    ] Blue is for regular Members' Evenings,

[    ] Green is for Evenings where a visiting speaker will make a

       presentation, and

[    ] Red is for the AGM. Be there, or be on the Committee next year!

 

2nd September 2014

This year sees the centenary of the start of the First World War and the 75th anniversary of the start of the Second. The theme for our Members’ Displays this evening will be ‘War & Peace.’

 

7th October 2014

One of the pleasures of collecting is the occasional discovery of something interesting, unusual or even valuable. This evening Members will introduce us to one or two of those special things (which need not be philatelic!) which have turned up in an auction or junk box or approvals, or whatever. ‘My Favourite Find.’

 

4th November 2014

We live in a most historic part of the country, where many of the Industrial Revolution’s great developments first saw the light of day. One of these is, of course, the Railway, and our first guest speaker of the Season will be Mr Arthur Jennion who will be giving his presentation about ‘Mails on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway.’

 

9th December 2014

We all enjoyed our Christmas Dinner last year, so again this year we will combine our December meeting with a satisfying collation of turkey and plum pudding, or whatever else takes our fancy.

 

6th January 2015

We have a tradition in our Club of Alphabetic Philately. Each Season we have an evening of Members’ displays based around two letters of the alphabet; one from each half. This year, the two letters are ‘C’ and ‘X’  The only limits are those of imagination.

 

3rd February 2015

Last Season Members were greatly entertained and interested by a presentation on the ‘Rise and Fall of German East Africa’ by Mr Eric Coulton. This evening, by popular request, Mr Coulton returns to tell us more about ‘Aspects of Tanganyika.’

 

3rd March 2015

This year marks the 175th anniversary of the introduction of the Penny Black and Twopenny Blue postage ‘labels.’ We will mark the anniversary by looking at an earlier celebration. Mr Brian Lythgoe will give his presentation on the ‘Stamp Centenary 1840-1940.’

 

7th April 2015  COMPETITION EVENING

This evening sees the competition for the John Winter Trophy. Entries for this competition are to be on twelve sheets and are to show the development of a philatelic theme.

 

5th May 2015 THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Not just the AGM, but also the Club Auction, where the success of the sales can have a marked effect on the subscription for the coming year! So, if you want a say in who is on the Committee next year (or even who is not!) don’t forget to turn up!

 

2nd June 2015

It has become traditional in our Club that the last evening of the season should be dedicated to postcards. This year we will be looking at postcards featuring anything to do with Transport.

The Calendar of our Meetings

 

Even though our previous years’ programmes are now history, it can be interesting to look back at the wide range of speakers and presentations which have both educated and entertained us.
