Rotherham Stamp & Postcard Club was founded in 2002, and offers stamp and postcard collectors in and around Rotherham friendly and informal meetings, opportunities to buy and exchange material, and regular meetings where members can see varied displays and meet fellow collectors. We welcome beginners and experienced stamp and postcard collectors and postal historians. Refreshments are available throughout the meeting. Ample car parking is available at our venue.

We are affiliated to the Yorkshire Philatelic Association (YPA), and our members enjoy the additional benefits this brings in participation in national and regional exhibitions and conventions.

Our Annual Subscription is £10


Visitors are always welcome at our meetings. If you are a stamp or postcard collector why not come along and find out more about our Society? See our Programme below for details of our meetings.

We meet at Longfellow Drive Community Hall, Herringthorpe, Rotherham, South Yorkshire S65 2LJ on the first Tuesday of the month from September to May (except January), from 7pm for meetings starting at 7.30pm.
