READING & DISTRICT CIGARETTE CARD & POSTCARD CLUB
Following the 18 month shutdown of the Club’s meetings and Annual Fair due to the effects and consequences of the Covid outbreak the Club went into a period of ‘hibernaton’ from which it emerged in September 2021 with three meetings for the rest of that year.
The Annual Fair was unable to be re-started in 2022, and it had to be cancelled in 2021. Currently the Rivermead venue in Reading is not available for the foreseeable future. This means a loss of annual income which would be necessary to maintain our previous level of activities. Hence the committee with the approval of the membership have altered our programme format to reduce our overall annual costs.
The Club now meets only once a month on the SECOND THURSDAY EVENING of each month at 19-45pm to 21-45 pm. at Charvil Village Hall, car parking at the Hall. There is NO meeting in January, so the diary runs from February through to December, 11 meetings in total. The meetings consist of members talks with powerpoint presentations, Auctions, an August mini-Fair for members and the general public, and the December AGM & Xmas Party. We have a regular attendance of about 25 members, buying and selling occurs at every meeting between members.
We have a mix of female and male members, and welcome any members of the public to visit us free of charge. If you have any old paper collectables, cigarette cards/ pre-1960 postcards to dispose of possibly in our quarterly auctions, and that you would like advice on, please ring 0118-9695155. We hope to see you one evening in the future. Our annual programme for 2023 will appear on our website shortly.
