members from all walks of life, ranging from solicitors to labourers.
We hold regular
Swaps meetings throughout the year, which are spread around the
country and all members are encouraged to attend, when and if possible.
In these modern
times of e-bay and computers, where contact is made through a faceless
computer screen our association tries to promote more swap meetings
so that members are able to put a face to the name, as we realise
that our members are not just a name in a book or a voice upon a
telephone. They are collectors who's aim is same as any other collectors
and that is to find that special item for their own collection.
are not only a great places to trade, buy and sell, they are also
great social gatherings, where members can sometimes gain valuable
information about collections and some find that elusive badge or
item, which they have been searching for to add to their collection.
Members have been known to travel from Belgium, Germany and France
to attend Swaps meetings, and there have also been members from
as far away as Canada and the United States.
As with all
associations the members are what keeps the association alive, we
are continually looking for new members and ideas to improve our
association and we ask all members to assist us by sending in items
for the P.I.C.A. magazine and to help promote your association in
any way possible.
