Welcome to the Scandinavia Philatelic Society
Welcome to the (now, not so) brand new official website of the Scandinavia Philatelic Society of Great Britain. The Society was founded in the United Kingdom in 1952 as the Scandinavian Collectors Club, to promote the collection of Stamps, Postcards and Postal History of greater Scandinavia. That is Denmark, Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, Åland Islands and also the former Danish Colony of Danish West Indies and the Norwegian Territory of Spitsbergen.
We meet regularly in the United Kingdom and hold an AGM weekend, usually in the spring. These are informal events, visitors are welcome and dates are published here on the website. Scandinavia Philatelic Society publishes a quarterly magazine journal, “Scandinavian Contact”, with news, research and other articles for its members. New members are always welcome and initial enquiries should be made to Susan Oliver at: firstname.lastname@example.org
