Havering Numismatic Society

Where: Fairkytes Arts Centre, Billet Lane, Hornchurch RM11 1AX.

When: First Tuesday of every month from 7.30pm to 10pm.

Cost: Annual membership costs £10. Meetings cost £2.

Contact: Email Pam Williams at pambob2@nhlworld.com or call 020 8554 5486.

Before then, however, the group is looking for new members with an interest in coins to come along to one of its meetings and the club secretary Pam Williams explains what people can expect.

“The club is quite jolly, a lot of them collect coins and we have guest speakers at our meetings.

“The last one we had was telling us about coins in Shakespeare’s time.

“From time to time we arrange away days to places of interest, which have included Coutts Bank, the Guildhall and the Bank of England.

“We have strong connections with local museums and have installed exhibits on various subjects.

“We also hold a members exhibition and a quiz every year. We also put on exhibitions for county shows.

“It’s quite a lively group, I would say we’ve got about 18 local members and we’ve got someone who emigrated and kept in touch ever since.

“It’s an interesting society and we are always looking for new members. We tell anyone they can come as a visitor if they collect coins.”

If you are interested in joining HNS then now is the perfect time because on June 6 the group will celebrate its golden anniversary and Pam hopes to see some old faces on the day.

“We’ve had a medallion issued and we are doing a buffet and we have got a speaker from the Royal Numismatic Society coming to do a talk.

“We’ve also invited several other clubs. Past members of Redbridge or Havering Numismatic Society are welcome to come along.”
