Germany & Colonies Philatelic Society
The year 2014 marked the 50th anniversary of the first year of operation of the Germany & Colonies Philatelic Society following the amalgamation of the Germany & Colonies Stamp Club (established 1947) and the Stockton German Study Group (1960).
The G&CPS celebrated its inaugural year in 1964 with the first Germania Posta philatelic exhibition held in Stockton.
This is the Society's journal, published quarterly and sent free to members. Bound annual volumes and copies of most individual issues of Germania and other Society publications are available.
This service is restricted to members resident in the UK. Packets containing a wealth of material are constantly in circulation.
See links below for copies of the packet rules and an application form:
Auction lists can be sent by e-mail on request without charge. A small charge will be made when members receive the lists by post.
For fuller details of the auction see the attached items:
The library holds a fine collection of books, catalogues, and other material related to German philately which may be borrowed by UK members, free of charge except for postage. The library catalogue can be found by clicking here.
Members can purchase publications on various aspects of German philately – general or specialised. Back issues of Germania are also available. Furthermore the Society can supply a wide range of philatelic accessories such as stamp catalogues (not just for German stamps but worldwide), albums, leaves, mounts etc mostly at 20% discount (+ postage). Go to the MEMBERS’ page for access to these membership benefits.
Our 2018 AGM weekend will be held from Friday 5 to Sunday 7 October at the Best Western Stoke-on-Trent Moat House, Etruria Hall, Festival Way, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire ST1 5BQ. The hotel is easily accessible from junction 16 of the M6 and is about two miles from Stoke-on-Trent railway station.
We have negotiated a keen package deal of just £180.00 per person for two nights, dinner, bed and breakfast. As usual there will be members’ displays, a stamp fair on the Saturday and an auction on the Sunday. There will also be a free Saturday excursion by coach to the World of Wedgwood, Barlaston, Stoke-on-Trent, with free tea/coffee on arrival and a guided tour of the museum. There will be opportunities (at the cost of the individual) for shopping, creative activities (such as decorating a plate) and lunch can be taken at the restaurant. The Wedgwood factory is closed on Saturdays so is not included in the tour.
Booking forms were sent out with the February issue of Germania and a copy of the form can be downloaded here. If you have not attended one of our AGM weekends before do please come along, you will be assured of a warm welcome and a very convivial weekend.
