Newcastle Philatelic Society

About the Society

The Society became a society in its own right in 1944, when the North of England Philatelic Society became the North of England Philatelic Association. Newcastle hosted the British Philatelic Federation Congress in 1920 and again in 1992. Two members of the Society have been awarded Congress medal and six members have received the ABPS Award of Merit. No fewer than twenty members of the Society have had the honour of being President of NEPA and nine have received NEPA’s Award of Merit for services to philately in the North East.
