ASPS Congress, Perth 2021

The ASPS is extremely disappointed to have to cancel Congress in Perth in April. Everyone involved was looking forward to the contributions from the host Societies, Kirkcudbright and Dumfries, and to hosting the UK Northern National Competition again. However, please use the link below to the ASPS web-site where a number of displays from members of the host Societies can be found, together with a range of displays from a range of other ASPS member Societies. We very much hope that you enjoy this snapshot of philately in Scotland.  Please click here for the ASPS website: ASPS Homepage (scottishphilately.co.uk)
