Virtual Exhibits at Alternative Scottish Congress - until 31 August 2021.

"Due to the ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic The Association of Scottish Philatelic Societies Scottish Congress which was due to be held in April and hosted by Kirkcudbright Philatelic & Postcard Society and Dumfries Stamp & Postcard Club has been cancelled."

Instead the ASPS has hosted the displays online here.
