Your invitation to join the Brighton Philatelic Society

About us:

The Brighton Philatelic Society was founded in 1950 & currently has around 400 members in Australia.

Membership is available to anyone interested in any aspect of philately. Many members are serious philatelists at competition level, others enjoy buying & selling material through auction sales, whilst some members are simply content to build their collections via sales & exchange sheets. There are many beginners including juniors who have just entered the hobby & want to learn about the hobby.

The Society offers:
1. Opportunities to buy & build collections & sell any excess material
2. Extensive exchange (approvals) circuit
3. A large philatelic library

d) First Saturday auction 1pm - viewing from 10.30am

Just an update to the original post:

Member's annual fees have increased to $35 :( from July 1 2014
but the $5 joining fee has been removed :)
so it still only costs $35 to join up.
