Somerset and Dorset Postal History Group


We meet twice a year at Hornsbury Mill, Chard, TA20 3AQ in March and October, where we are entertained by guest speakers and members’ displays of Somerset & Dorset postal history as well as on broader aspects of postal history.

Our Autumn meeting for 2020 will be on Sunday 18th October 2020, programme to be confirmed.

Our Spring 2020 meeting was held on Sunday 1st March, when Nick Bridgwater showed "Bristol Back-of-the-Book" with examples of Bristol postage due marks followed by examples of the various charge and instructional marks in use at Bristol.  After lunch this was followed by our usual displays from members.  The meeting confirmed Allen Cotton as Treasurer, and he gave a brief overview of the accounts which were a small amount in the black for 2019.  The Treasurer would be grateful for the annual subscription of £10, due from those members who could not attend the meeting.  An online copy of the Spring 2020 Journal is available here, password protected in the usual manner.  See here for a report of the meeting.

Our Autumn 2019 meeting was held on Sunday 20th October, when Graham Mark showed 'South West England Prisoners of War' and John Russell displayed 'Scottish Islands' .  There was also a brief AGM (less than 10 minutes !) where the accounts were seen to be in good order and the current Officers were re-elected.  This was followed by our usual displays from members.  An online copy of the Autumn 2019 Journal is available here, password protected in the usual manner.  See here here for a report of the meeting.
