Gladstone and District Philatelic Society Hosts Annual Stamp Fair

The local group has hosted their 37th annual stamp fair since 1985.

The club’s secretary, Ian Rippingale, said that the event was a collection of likeminded people who have a major interest in stamp collecting.

“While the numbers were down a bit this year in comparison to previous years, we did have a group of hardcore collectors who really enjoyed themselves,” said Ian.

Collectors and admirers alike can expect to see the 2023 stamp fair held in March next year, on the 25th and 26th of March.

The society also holds bi-monthly stamp meetings and business meetings, on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, respectively. The society encourages newcomers and visitors alike to attend these meetings.

The Gladstone and District Philatelic Society currently has 42 members Australia wide, with 19 of them living in the Gladstone Region.
