      Auctions :
      In April each year we hold a Club Stamp Auction and send out catalogues to collectors, country-wide as well as to local clubs. In 2012 our Auction takes place at our usual venue, the Morgan Centre, Wellington Road, Crowthorne RG45 7LD on Saturday 14th April.

      In the 25 or more years that we have run these auctions we have sold some exceptional lots. Our top prices are £2,150 for a stampless Cyprus cover of World War I and £1,000 for a GB First Day Cover (believed unique) of the KGVI Silver Wedding bearing the 2½d and £1 stamp sent registered from Windsor Castle. However there is something for all collectors. For more information get in touch with John Pugh.

      To A Stamp
      By Colin Campbell courtesy of Robert Burns

      When Royal Mail billies meet aboot
      A new issue o' stamps
      What thoughts are going through their minds
      As they begin tae rant?

      “What of Burns?” quoth one of them
      The rest look up and smile
      “Just give the Scots a mini-sheet
      It's really not worth while”

      “But what if they begin to grouse?
      Says another o' the pack
      “We'll tell them that they are out of luck
      And let them pout and sulk”

      Now let's get to another issue
      Like that motor-racing chappy
      These we'll sell as single stamps
      And then we'll all be happy

      But in the north oor Willie stirs
      And rakes up quite a stushie
      E'en Alex S. has heard his grief
      And disnae like the story

      So will auld Rabbie's stamps be used
      To grace oor letters fulsome
      Or will they just fill a wee space
      In some collector's album?
