New Exhibition at Il-Ħaġar Museum

The Gozo Philatelic Society has set up a new exhibit in their showcase on level-1 at Il-Ħaġar (Pjazza San Gorg - Victoria), in preparation for a public lecture being organized on 19 May based on a 1886 letter to Alexandria.
This temporary exhibition consists of vintage letters sent to or received from North African addresses. Being so old (even as far back as the first decade of the nineteenth century), they carry interesting postal markings and also highlight aspects of social history. It should be noted that these are further items from the Juncker Malta collection donated to the GPS.
Opening hours are 9am-5pm seven days a week and there is no entrance fee.

Back with the AGM

After too long a hiatus, we are beginning again our updating of this website. Obviously, events have in the meantime continued regularly ‐ reported mainly in the GPS Newsletter.
The Annual General Meeting was held (as has become the norm) at Il‐Hagar Museum on Victoria's Pjazza San Gorg on Sunday 21 January 2018. Besides the usual reports, the event included the distribution of certificates, medals and other prizes (with MaltaPost as main sponsor) to November 2017 GPS Exhibition participants.
The temporary exhibit in the GPS showcase on Level 1 at Il‐Hagar was changed to "Philatelic" Bands.
