Ferryhill & Bowburn  Philatelic Society

About the Society

Our newest society has had a change of name and venues, which is a welcome trend in an age of declining attendances and societies closing down. The society has a comfortable meeting venue and welcomes all to attend the inaugural meeting to be held on the 14th July 2009. The organiser is asking for your unwanted stamps to form kiloware which will then be used to raise funds for the Children’s Heart Unit Fund at the Freeman Hospital, Newcastle. Please send you unwanted stamps to John (address below) or give them to him at one of the new Ferryhill Society meetings.
