A QUICK CHAT ABOUT OUR MEETINGS
Northampton and District Cigarette Card Club meet at the Weston Favell Parish Hall, Booth Lane South, Northampton, NN3 3EP every first Monday in the month,from 6 - 9 pm unless its Bank Holiday (on Bank Holiday weeks they move the meeting to the second Monday of the month). They aim to have one visiting dealer at each meeting.
Our meeting in November 2022 had John Taylor as visiting dealer. And it was quite a successful night. Although we as a club are still struggling to get numbers up to former levels pre-covid we had a couple of new visitors come up from London so turnout was quite good. We have a large car park and the hall is quite spacious so all our members currently get a table to sit at & sort cards at their leisure. Teas & biscuits are supplied by our fantastic husband and wife catering team and members dogs receive a lot of admiring attention from all concerned. Our member's interests also include stamps and model trains so there's always a varied conversation to be had. Regards Glyn Roberts

A LOOK INTO OUR ARCHIVES
Our story seems to begin in the late 1980s, when we are recorded as meeting every third Thursday of the month, from 6.30 p.m., at Spencer Dallington Community Centre in Tintern Avenue, Northampton. And we moved from being an Affiliated Club to a Branch some time between 2002 and 2004.
