North East of England Philatelic Association


 
NEPA can trace its history back to the formation of the North of England Philatelic Society in Newcastle in 1903. As the society grew, it formed branches in Sunderland, Darlington and Shields. The Society was reorganized as an Association of Societies thus forming the North of England Philatelic Association at a special meeting in 1944 .


The next Stamp Fair and NEPA convention will take place on Saturday 6th April 2019 at the Bowburn Community Centre, Durham DH6 5AT and the next NEPA Auction will take place at the Bowburn Community Centre, Durham DH6 5AT on 10th November 2018
