How it all started:

The Club was formed in September 1999 and soon attracted a popular following with over 50 members enrolling in the first six months. 

Membership soared to over 220 and, while numbers have stabilised to around 200 in recent years, the Club remains the largest in the UK catering exclusively for postcard collectors. Members are drawn from  Plymouth and West Devon,  all parts of Cornwall from Penzance to Launceston, and much further afield! 

The inaugural date has been commemorated in the postmark which has become the Club’s official logo.  The aim of the Club is to bring together postcard collectors and provide opportunities to:

Ø   enhance member's knowledge of collecting

Ø   buy and sell postcards from reputable dealers

Ø   listen to guest speakers talking about a wide variety of fascinating topics

Ø   receive an informative Newsletter with postcard features sent regularly to each member’s home address and:

Ø   enjoy the fellowship of other collectors at monthly meetings and other activities during the year

Meetings held on the second Wednesday of the month feature guest speakers covering a wide range of topics, often postcard–related, and regular displays of members’ collections.

We meet at the Scout Centre, Manadon, Plymouth, PL3 5TB on the second Wednesday of each month  (except August) Meetings commence at 7.00pm.

Two dealers are also in attendance to give members an opportunity to buy or sell or just browse through hundreds of cards of every description.

Special events include an annual Bring & Buy Sale exclusively for members to trade cards and ephemera between themselves, a summer walkabout around a Devon or Cornwall location with the services of an official guide, followed by a buffet supper and a special Christmas Cabaret evening with a festive buffet and free prize draw.
