Stockton & District Philatelic Society

About the Society

The Stockton and District Philatelic Society, originally known as The Stockton, Teesside and District Philatelic Society held its first meeting on the 20th September 1947. A total of 23 members were present and Mr. Tunstal, N.E.P.A. Secretary at the time, agreed to be the Chairman. Whilst the name, venue and subscriptions have changed over the years, the enjoyment of collecting has not. The membership is usually around 30-35, with over twenty regularly attending meetings. The Society has also an active stamp packet which is circulated around members in the Society and other adjacent Societies.

The Society is a small friendly group of members whose collecting interests cover a variety of subjects and themes. A number of members meet up in a local hostelry after the meeting to discuss various matters and generally put the world to rights – why don’t you come alone to one of our meetings.
