'The Society is a large and very active stamp club formed in 1965 for the study of stamps and encouragement of all branches of stamp collecting in Falkirk and the surrounding area ...

'The benefits of membership are numerous. Firstly there is an enormous pool of knowledge and know-how within and outwith the club that you can draw upon. Then there is the annual programme of guest speakers of the highest calibre in Scotland who give presentations on as wide a range of philatelic subjects as you can imagine. Also there are interchange visits to and from other Scottish clubs; regular displays of stamps; in-house and national competitions; an annual quiz; and opportunity to show your collecting interests. We engage with other philatelic activities locally, and nationally through both the ASPS (Association of Scottish Philatelic Societies) and ABPS (Association of British Philatelic Societies) ...

'The Society has its own library of close to 200 stamp catalogues and reference books. The many different types of philatelic publications are all loaned free of charge to members ...'
