Congratulations to RTWPS

We want to say congratulations to – the Royal Tunbridge Wells Philatelic Society for being the first Society to take up our offer of a full and detailed listing.

If you’re in the Kent area, they have some great exhibitions and are a very friendly and professional group. We’ve attended a few of their events and are always impressed by the attention to detail of their members.

The site is launching to showcase UK Stamp Clubs and Philtelic Societies, and was thought up nearly 5 years ago.. yes.. we can’t believe it’s taken that long.. but it’s been an interesting 5 years, and we think the wait will have been long enough.

We’ve been working with the team at to ensure we get the right mix of fun and quality content, building realtionships, and as you can imagine and hopefully appreciate working on the site functionality and design.

We’d love to hear from you, and hope this website will become the number one resource for UK Stamp Clubs.
