Eastbourne and South Downs Philatelic Society

© Eastbourne and South Downs Philatelic Society 2013.

Weekly Meetings

The Society meets every week (except at Christmas) upstairs in the Burnage Room of St John Ambulance Brigade Headquarters in Bourne Street,  at 7 for 7.30 p.m. on Thursdays.

The programme for these meetings runs from 1st September to the following 31st August.

Visiting speakers give displays and talks throughout the year, sometimes travelling great distances to do so.

The Society's library of some 500 philatelic volumes is kept in the meeting room, and items may be withdrawn and/or returned at all meetings.
