We used to meet once a month at :
St. Pauls Church Hall, (next to ASDA), Culliford Crescent, Canford Heath, Poole BH17 9DW
Our meetings run from 1.30 – 4.30 pm and often include local and national dealers. We also encouraged our members to bring spare cards for disposal. When we realised our April meeting clashed with Easter Sunday we moved it to the following week. Little did we realise that our March meeting would be our last, possibly for some time. The current situation has also affected the Society Convention which we were so proud to be co-hosting. We are heartened to hear a later date has already been booked. So let us all look to the future and keep strong. Any news of that convention will appear on another  page which you can reach by clicking on : 

THE ANNUAL CARD CONVENTION
[Our featured card is by Lambert & Butler – from the 1926 set of  “Motor Index Marks”. This is a really attractive set showing local views as well as the registration letters which at that time denoted where any car on the road had been registered. However its title can suggest that it is a set showing cars. One note of warning. This set has been reproduced for commercial sale and framing. The reproduction cards do carry wording to this effect, but do be careful if you are offered a mint set at a bargain rate.]
