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.
In 2019, the Society celebrated it's 75th Anniversary - please click on this link for some more information on the event.
