Additional Information:The Society was founded in September 1937, and took as its name ‘The REDHILL, REIGATE and DISTRICT PHILATELIC SOCIETY’. The first regular meeting of the Society was held at the Rees Rooms, Redhill when 12 collectors were present. By the end of the first season the membership had increased to 25. The activities of the Society were somewhat curtailed during the years 1942 – 46 owing to the Second World War, but 1947 saw a revival of enthusiasm such that the membership reached 70 in 1948. The meeting place had now moved to the Market Hall Buildings, Redhill on the second Tuesday of each month. This year also saw the Redhill, Reigate & District Philatelic Society become one of the 11 founding societies of the Surrey Federation of Philatelic Societies. The Society has continued to grow and succeed.
