NIPS as Guests at Royal Philatelic Society Regional Meeting in Northern Ireland, February 2010.

Below is a photographic record of some of the events taking place throughout the day as well as examples from some of the one frame displays.

The morning saw members and guests each provide a one frame display to allow Dr Alan Huggins and Francis Kiddle the opportunity to discuss the pros and cons of One Frame Exhibitions. This followed a lecture by Dr Alan Huggins on how it should be done and on what issues the judges look for. The afternoon session concentrated on one frame cinderella displays allowing Francis, the Chairman of the Cinderella Club from 1991 to 2005, the opportunity to discuss the 'back of the book' content.

The RPS Regional Committee pass on thanks to the National Trust for use of Mount Stewart and in particular to Lady Rose Lauritzen for the continued support of Lady Mairi's family. Thanks also to the Royal Mail for sponsorship of the event. (Photos by Kevin McShane & Stuart Tanner).
