Hexham Philatelic Society

About the Society

The Society was founded in 1966 and is one of the smaller NEPA societies, and holds regular meetings in the AFTERNOON from September through May. They are a small but friendly and enthusiastic group, even if they are not the cultural dynamic centre of the Philatelic world!!! Our society warmly welcomes new members and we hosted the 2015 NEPA Convention in our lovely market town.
