New Premises for the Royal Philatelic Society

Your webmaster has been in touch with the RPS about the move to the new premises at Abchurch Lane in The City - he has been involved with departments from the Corporation of the City of London about this.

At present the proposed timetable for the move stands as follows

All further requests for information and assistance should wait until September lst

April 9, 2019 - All items not in regular use begin to be moved

April 30, 2019 onwards - The Society is closed to members except for meeting days and other associated activities including preparations for Stockholmia 2019

May 17, 2019 - Removal of all items not being relocated to Abchurch Lane

June 19-24, 2019 - removal of all items to Abchurch Lane

July 5, 2019 - hand over of Devonshire Place to its new owners

For members unfamiliar with either the City of London and/or Abchurch Lane in particular an annotated map is attached and can be found by clicking HERE

Your webmaster would suggest using Bank Tube station for the very short walk to Abchurch Lane - members though who use the Circle and District lines should alight at either Monument or Cannon Street - depending on the direction of travel - which are equally close.
