Text Box: Forthcoming R.T.W.P.S Meetings


Join us for the next R.T.W.P.S. lunchtime meeting (10:30 a.m.) at the Spread Eagle Public House, Hawkenbury on Thursday 24th August for a display by The Royal Philatelic Society (London).




The meeting will be followed by lunch, should you wish to join us. The pub restaurant has a very good menu, and is good value for your money.




If you cannot attend the lunchtime meeting, why not join us for the next evening meeting (commencing 7:30) on Thursday 14th September, when we will have a display by Mr Chris Phillips, titled ‘Newlands Road Philatelic Club’.


*Free tea or coffee will be available at the half way break
