Solihull Philatelic Society

Welcome to our website

Version 51 28/04/2022

Our formal season has now ended. Monthly meetings will take place at the Drum and Monkey on 7th June, 5th July and 2nd August for a drink and a chat, philatelic or not as you see fit. Some philatelic auction catalogues may also be available. The meetings will start at an earlier time of 7:30 pm, not 8:00 pm as in previous years.

The new season will start on 6th September - more details will be posted here as received.

The Anniversary Dinner will now take place on Friday 1st July 2022 (not 29th April as in the Programme) in the Gloucester Suite at the St John's Hotel in Solihull.

The Society was 50 in 2020. To commemorate this milestone, a special offer of two years' membership for one will be offered to any new member who mentions this website.

The next Knowle Stamp Fair will be on 17th June 2022 at Knowle Village Hall between 10:00 am and 2:30 pm.  There is no Knowle Stamp Fair in May due to the Knowle Fun Run. The fairs in 2022 will be on the usual third Sunday of each month. Do come along and support your local stamp fair.

The Marie Curie Auction has been postponed until 6th November 2022. Donations are still being accepted - please send in details of donations pledged and view here. Lots updated 17th September 2021. See article in the local Solihull Observer.

Members can now create a pdf document of favourite / interesting items that they have and send them by email to include on this site. 

Bernadette would like any  unwanted stock cards or packaging to be saved for her as she needs it urgently to pack up stamps for Oxfam. If you can help, please contact Paul through the email on the Contacts page.
