HOBART 20/20 Stamp and Postcard Exhibition

“Looking Back at History”

 Cancellation of Exhibition

I regret to announce that the Exhibition Committee has decided after due consideration that the Exhibition cannot be held as currently scheduled. I am sure you will understand the reasons for this decision and it goes without saying this is not a decision we have made lightly or happily.

Whether or not we can re-schedule at a later date is not certain at present but please be assured we will advise you of any plans to conduct the exhibition at some time in the future.

Peter Allan, Exhibition Secretary 11 April 2020
