Stamp Club

Medstead Village Hall

About the Club or class

Alton Stamp Club was founded in October 1964 by a group of eleven like-minded collectors who wanted a forum in which they could meet others with an interest in postage stamps.  From the outset, they decided that they would not be a “Philatelic Society”, preferring to be a “Stamp Club” that welcomed everyone, whether they were beginners or had long-established collections, whether they were serious philatelists or simply wanted to collect on a casual basis.

This philosophy has characterised the Club throughout its history.

Always seeking to encourage stamp collecting, the Club welcomes Junior members, and for some years in the 1980s several young people of secondary school age attended the Club, receiving guidance (and often stamps!) from older club members for half-an-hour before the meetings started.
