                    SURREY POSTAL HISTORY




The Surrey Postal History Group (SPHG) was formed in October 1989, when five avid collectors met in a front room in Claygate, where it was decided to create a group dedicated to the study of Surrey Postal History.  Since then the group has expanded to thirty+ members

Message to Members


This is your site so any suggestion are welcome. I will need help with some aspects. Please send me scans of favourite postal items and Surrey Postal History Group activities past and present. 200dpi J pegs to my Drop Box or E Mail.  If you cant scan, I can scan for you, just bring round some items (10 to 20) and I will scan them.



The club holds a large number of books etc on Surrey.  If there is any aspect you wise to look up I am sure we can help.


Web Site


Surrey Postal History Group web site on WIX is free but only allows one page. A fee of £10+ per month avails us more pages but the club cannot afford it. So I have opened a 'second front' on my web site for the club to use, free of charge. If you know of someone who can build our own web-site please put them in touch with me (Pete).
