Additional Information:Liskeard and District Philatelic Society, founded in 1943, changed its name to Liskeard Stamp Club in 1992/3. Being a rural area the club relies on members travelling to the meetings as there are only three members living in Liskeard, recently a previous member rejoined the club after a long absence due to work commitment. There are thirteen members now eight of them belonging to more than one club. Some years ago the club had to close for a time due to loss of numbers we have been continually meeting since the 1980s. The finances of the club were secured in the late 1980s by hosting the Thompson cup competition and providing the refreshments with the then Treasurer Lesley Marley heading a team of members wives doing a marvellous job. Liskeard has been a member of ABPS, Wessex and Cornwall Philatelic Federations for many years and supporting many of the fairs and exhibitions in the region.
