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.’

our December meeting with a satisfying collation of turkey and plum pudding, or whatever
else takes our fancy.

We have a tradition in our Club of Alphabetic Philately. Each Season we have an evening

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
