A very warm welcome to FEPA

The Federation of European Philatelic Associations

Bill Hedley

I am Bill Hedley, President of FEPA, and I am delighted to welcome you to our website.

For 30 years FEPA has been helping the national philatelic organisations in 44 countries to promote the wonderful world of philately.

Culturally fascinating, therapeutic, a route to lifelong learning, and with a strong social network, it offers something for everybody.

Our website brings you the latest news about European Philately as well as our FEPA NEWS magazine, published twice a year.

Also here is information on forthcoming exhibitions, and about us – as well as links to the national organisations who are members of FEPA.
