What we do

The group is not just for collectors, but for those who may have inherited old cards, or saved those sent to them by friends and family. New members are welcome to join us at any time.

The first half of each meeting is an examination and discussion of cards related to a chosen theme, and in the second half we look at any cards which members choose to show us, either ones newly added to collections, or those newly discovered in old ones.

Occasionally we may attend postcard fairs sharing transport.


May 2018

The group have had some excellent meetings, especially when new member, Rose, gave a very interesting talk and display on the history and early postcards of Ambleside. Earlier in the year Ann had given another interesting show with cards on the subject - Canals. The meeting in February had to be cancelled.

July 2017

Our 2016/7 season finished in June and although we  had some very interesting meetings holidays and other commitments meant that we sometimes were few in number! We really could do with a couple of new members. There must be some other postcard collectors in the South Lakes U3 who would like to join us!
