A New Millennium
From the start of 2000, we moved from Laindon to the George Hurd Centre, close to Basildon town centre. The improved environment at the new venue has resulted in a growth in attendances and given more flexibility for programme planning.
In 2004 the Association of Essex Philatelic Societies hosted the 5th National Philatelic Exhibition in Basildon. The event was titled Basildon 2004 and held in the Towngate Theatre and adjacent BasCentre. Several members of Basildon Philatelic Society were involved with this successful event.
