Given the current situation with COVID-19, we feel that the ABPS should give some leadership and guidance, especially given the age profile of many of those involved with our hobby.

ABPS advice is that all Government guidelines should be followed. Also, that all society events in the UK should be postponed or cancelled; in the first instance until the end of April, but in all probability until the start of next season in September.

On behalf of the ABPS General Committee.

The YPA would like to help our affiliated societies and will publish on this website the dates of your society first meeting when the current restrictions have been lifted. Please let the webmaster know

We really want to make sure that all societies promote themselves on the INTERNET we feel that it is an essential way to reach new members. Those persons wishing to find a new hobby or reignite a hobby of their youth and are INTERNET literate. And lets not forget about keeping in touch with existing and our older members.

Free of charge Website design and initial training (there are conditions and you may wish to add things which will attract fees)

How to present a club display : the dos and don'ts.

How to write up a competition entry 

How to store your collection, interactions between papers, etc. 

If you feel that there are other subjects you would like to have presented to your society please let the YPA secretary know. We will try our hardest to find suitable presenters.
