Campbelltown District Philatelic Society

We have a new meeting venue while the church hall is unavailable.

It is the Senior Citizens Hall in Queen Street.

Also, the Fishers Ghost Stamp Fair is going ahead on Sunday 1 November.

Full details below.

A couple of pieces of good news for a change.

 

First of all, we are going to have our first club meeting since March. The Church Hall is still closed so we are going to meet on the second Wednesday (14th October) in the Campbelltown Senior Citizens' Hall, Queen Street, Campbelltown (entry via the underpass in Broughton Street and turn left at the end of the underpass for one of the 14 parking spots available or on Queen Street just past the Court House and walk done the stairs to the building entrance) adjacent to the Civic Hall starting at 7.00 PM. Some members will be there earlier to ensure our seats and tables are sanitised. There will be no presentation on the night but there will be an auction. We will request that members wear a face mask and we will have sanitising liquid available on the night. There will be individual biscuit sachets and tea and coffee available to ensure we are following the Council's and Seniors' Club rules. Temperature checks will be done at the door and social distancing needs to be observed. If anyone is not feeling well on the night please stay home for all our sakes. The capacity for this night in this hall is 20 in the main hall and another 20 in the entrance hall and kitchen.

Members, you can bring along your items for the auction but they will be limited to 15 items per member. Tony will be putting up almost 50 Club lots. Any extra items you bring can be put up last if there is available space. As you can appreciate, this is the first night at this venue and as yet we cannot be aware of all the issues we may face on the night.

 

Second bit of good news. The Fisher's Ghost Stamp Fair has been given the green light to go ahead on 1st November, 2020 as long as our Covid-19 Safety Plan is acceptable to the Council's Governance team. The Civic Hall has a capacity of 67 attendees at any one time including workers. There can be no Canteen this year due to Covid-19 restrictions. The details for the day is a Work in Progress. We need to get communication and adverts out ASAP.

 

If everything goes well with this meeting we plan to hold our AGM at the same venue in November.

 

We look forward to seeing many of you on the 14th.

 We regularly display items from our collections and enjoy a warm and friendly social interaction at the same time.

 Our club promotes stamp collecting in the Macarthur area by holding stamp fairs, advertising club meetings and talking on the local community radio.

 We have around 25 - 30 regular members attending the monthly meetings.
