I most sincerely apologise for breaking with a long-time tradition, but I regret that the planned-for auction later this month at the AGM in Porto will not now take place.
This year I have had increased mobility problems and this has necessitated a planned operation to free a nerve in my back which in turn has restricted my traveling.
I am planning to re-create the auction on-line in mid-year and will be contacting all those who have given me items to sell, to gain their approval for this. Notice will be given both in the magazine and on this website as and when a date is known.
I hope that the AGM is a massive success and hope to see everyone at Midpex in July.

PPS was again one of the societies present at Midpex, which took place on July 4th. PPS members provided displays, manned the table with past bulletins and other items available in our shop, answered queries, and, of course, took the opportunity to acquire philatelic material from the many dealers. Click on an image for more information.
Next year’s WESTPEX exhibition will feature the PPS and the ISPP as its guest societies. PPS members Roy Teixeira and Clyde Homen are involved in the organisation. Roy just sent in the most recent promotional card (click to enlarge). For more information see the event entry in our database.
Our auctioneer, Roger Lawson, has put together the catalogue of this year’s auction. The auction will take place on March 7th, after the AGM. If you can’t attend, you may submit your bids (in British pounds) via the form below, which will be e-mailed to Roger. The form
will be was removed on March 3rd.
Only PPS members can bid for lots, but there’s still time to become a member.
