About the Pitcairn and Norfolk Islands Society
Originally known as the Pitcairn Islands Study Group, UK, the name was changed at the Annual General Meeting in 2012 to incorporate Norfolk Island which has a major connection to Pitcairn and also has its own interesting history.
The Group meets twice a year in London for a day of varied programmes, including guest speakers, film and video shows, displays from members' collections and an extremely popular live auction of Pitcairn, Norfolk Island and Bounty related material. More importantly, the meetings offer an opportunity for members to share information, and enjoy a day with fellow enthusiasts.
The award winning journal The Bounty, formerly known as The UK Log, is one of the Group’s greatest assets, and is published twice a year. It contains a wealth of information including historical topics, current news and events of the islands, philatelic items with new postage stamp issues and general Society news.
In addition to the PNI, members may also consider joining the worldwide Pitcairn Islands Study Group, to which the UK group is affiliated, and which was formed in the United States. This Group also produces its own quarterly magazine, the Pitcairn Log.
'London 2022', the International Stamp Exhibition, was held in February 2022 and several members took the opportunity to meet for food and refreshments at the Islington Town House.
Members of the Society celebrated its 30th Anniversary in 2018 with a cruise and lunch on the River Thames in London.
