🎅 MERRY CHRISTMAS 🤶17th September 2018 by Michele Auborn
No of course it’s not too early.
In fact it’s never too early to mention the most exciting type of Christmas Cards. So this page is dedicated to any branch who is planning on being in the tinsel this year, and helping them to attract lots of visitors.
You see most of our Branches host cracking Christmas Special Meetings, but its not always easy to track them down, especially if you don’t know where to look. So watch this space for all the dates and happenings. And tell your collecting pals to pop in too.
And if your club is joining in with any kind of Christmas festivities don’t be shy, tell us and we will add the details here! In fact if you check the calendar HERE you will see the Christmas events have a rather nifty new emoji !
So let’s start with KENT – on the 14 December, the doors open at 10am and close at 4 pm, lots of cards with some Christmas plums provided specialy for the occasion, and the event includes a raffle with over 30 prizes (thought you might like to know the top prize in 2018 was a £100 Marks and Spencer hamper). The action all takes place at the Crofton Halls, Crofton Lane, Orpington BR6 8PR. The venue is easily accessible by public transport and right next to the railway station, so there’s really no excuse to miss out this year.
Same date, but why not nip up to Norfolk? Our EAST ANGLIA branch will be having a cracking Christmas on the 14 December. That’s at Roydon Village Hall from 8.30 till 3.30. More details will be uploaded on their wonderful website as it gets closer. That’s http://www.eaccc.co.uk
Next up, on 19 December, is LONDON. They have an annual event, held at The Carpenters Arms, Seymour Place, London W1. That’s near Marble Arch, so if you are going Christmas shopping do call in. It starts at 5pm and goes on until 8pm, and all collectors are welcome. More details will follow on this!
A dilemma. Imagine you are, or know a card collector who lives outside the UK, who would be really interested to join us, were it not for the high cost of the overseas subscription? If only there was a way to reduce this cost. And now there is!
Anyone want to buy a large cricket collection. Only joking! That is what I wrote on the Saturday afternoon of the 3rd Ashes Test. As you will know, England managed a magnificent 67 all out in their 1st innings, with only Root and Bairstow out to goo
The Handbook is divided into two parts and provides comprehensive listings and illustrations of known ‘Felt’ and ‘Leather’ Designs issued by Tobacco and Trading Companies in North America, Canada & Great Britain between 1910 and 1915.
Oh to be in England now that summer’s there! Writing this in mid-June, it is not very warm and the rain is affecting the cricket World Cup with 3 games abandoned so far. I shouldn’t grumble, it has given me the chance to get the auction listing
