'The Society meets on the first and third Tuesday of each month between September and May and endeavours to provide the medium through which fellow collectors can meet and enhance their knowledge and enjoyment of stamp collecting and its related fields. We foster a friendly and informal atmosphere, with the minimum necessary formality, in which both novice and philatelist alike can co-exist and thrive. The programme of events covers most branches of philately without too much emphasis on any one sphere.'

'The Society was first formed in November 1947, but declining numbers led to the society folding in the 1950’s. It was re-formed in May 1972 and thrived during the seventies and eighties, with a boost in membership coming in 1982 when the society produced a special cover to commemorate the 500th Anniversary of Berwick-upon-Tweed as an English Town ... Please note - the meetings of the Berwick and District Philatelic Society are AFTERNOON meetings. Please come along to support ... members in the northernmost society in NEPA - guests are always welcome and very well looked after.'

'We are a friendly national association for stamp collectors, philatelists and postcard collectors who like to collect "thematically", that is following a chosen theme (e.g. ships, birds, medicinal plants) or relating a story (e.g. the development of the bicycle or the history of flight) ... Our aim is to give support to those wishing to embark on or expand a theme-based collection, whether it consists purely of stamps or postcards, or includes a wide range of additional material including postal history, postmarks and ephemera.'
