2020 Convention – Salisbury12th April 2019 by webspinner
Regretfully, owing to the current situation, we have decided to postpone this event. But we have already arranged our new date, which will be
SATURDAY 17th and SUNDAY 18th OCTOBER 2020
and still at the same venue
FIVE RIVERS LEISURE CENTRE,
HULSE ROAD, SALISBURY, WILTSHIRE SP1 3NR
And if you are a Cartophilic Society Member don’t forget that you are allowed free admission throughout both days.
Many thanks to everyone who has sent donations of cards for our card swap. This will still be taking place on the new date, and now we have time to source out even more cards for you. It also gives you more time to keep looking through your odds boxes and seeing if you have any to add to our stocks. The cards we are swapping this year will be from the various formats of Topps Match Attax, Panini Adrenalyn XL, all styles of Pokémon cards, plus Sainsburys Lego, and Sainsburys Pixar Heroes, both the blue back “free” cards and the yellow back “commercial issue” cards. Or similar, all swell the table and boost the interest. You can always bring them with you to save posting them. If any members or dealers wish to donate larger quantities of these cards we will be delighted. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like more information on donating.
Don’t forget if you want reference books from us, or dealer catalogues you can get in touch direct and arrange to collect at the fair. This is an excellent way to save post on those – which you can spend in the hall on more cards!
The Leisure centre is just off the main ring road around Salisbury, and about twenty minutes walk from the city centre and railway station which is linked by direct train from London Waterloo, Bristol and the West Country, and the South Coast. There will be free parking for approximately 300 cars.
INSIDE THE VENUE :
All the dealers will be housed in a single large well lit hall, it’s situated right by the reception and cafe, and all on one level. It covers over 1,000 square metres. The Society AGM will take place in a room close by.
Dealer access details will be provided on booking but the leisure centre has good unloading facilities with easy access for all those laden trolleys. There will be free parking for approximately 300 cars.

I can remember talking to Dennis the gardener, one day in 1983, he would come to mow our lawns each week and would pop into the kitchen for a cup of tea, a biscuit and a chat. I mentioned that I was going to look for the Taddy snuff-mills on t
