Hampshire Philatelic Federation - Golden Anniversary Year - 2019

A meeting of representatives from Societies interested in forming a Federation of Hampshire Philatelic Societies was held in Basingstoke on 9th July 1969. The inaugural meeting on 20th August 1969 elected the initial officers with Mr G Robinson as Chairman, Mr F Kiddle as Secretary and Mr A Parkhurst as Treasurer.

Fifty years on and the Hampshire Federation runs an annual convention - HAMPEX - with an inter-society competition, of two 16 sheet entries per society, for the Howard-White Trophy. There is also an individual 32 sheet competition for which the best entry is awarded the Jan Kaluski Cup. The Bulletin continues with the same three issues per year and the Federation Committee meets three times a year.

Here is a copy of the original meeting minutes.
