Club activities and services


From February to December the Society produces The Magpie a bi-monthly newsletter. The editor, Robyn Powell is always happy to receive articles, information, etc for inclusion in The Magpie.


The club operates a Circuit for its members.

Bruce Marshall Plate – Hawkes Bay Competition

We now have a competition in the Hawkes Bay. It is a Dalton plate donated by Faith Marshall wife of the late Bruce Marshall who won the plate at some stage. We do not have the details, so if anyone can fill us in on this we would be happy to hear from them.
The plate is now encased in a sturdy wooden frame with a suitable plaque. It is to be contested by the Hawkes Bay Philatelic Society and the Hastings Stamp Collectors Club on an annual basis each July.

Baker Cup

A society competition held most meetings with entries of a single page on an interpretation of the topic. Judging is by popular vote on Glub nights. All members are encouraged to participate as it is a good way of learning how to exhibit.
