Philas House


The Northern NSW floods around Lismore have had devastating effects on stamps owned by collectors in that area.  See the report on the Richmond River Stamp Club page here.

Parramatta Open Day will be held on Saturday 14th May, at its regular venue of the OES Hall behind the Wentworthville Railway Station. Because the date does not clash with the Federal election, the Open Day is definitely going ahead.

         This has been re-scheduled to 27 - 29 May 2022.

  PHILAS House now has a state-of-the-art security system with multiple cameras on every floor and covering the entrance areas.  The views from the cameras can be monitored in real time and can be viewed as recordings for at least a month afterwards.  It is also possible to get close-ups of anything recorded by the cameras.

  This increased security will be a great help during the auctions and on auction viewing days.
