Over 20 members participate in a packet circuit which covers Preston and District under the overall management of the North West Federation of Philatelic Societies.
Packets of philatelic material are circulated through Society members on different circuits and the circuits are also reversed so that members have an equal chance of receiving newly issued packets.
Purchasing items through the packet is a good way of filling gaps in your collection with a wide range of material on offer including GB, Commonwealth, foreign (old to modern) and thematics and covers. Most of the items are priced competitively.
Collectors accumulate a substantial number of duplicates and unwanted material and the packet offers a good way of selling some off.
The Society also receives a small commission based on its total yearly spend on items from the packet sold to its members; this is added to Society funds.
The rules and guidance for members on participating in the packet circuit are available from the Packet Secretary.
