Bedford Numismatic Society Open Day: 23/10/2022 – Gary Oddie

This note presents the recent history of the Bedford Numismatic Society, how it survived the decline of membership over the past few decades and how its numbers have steadily risen over the past decade. The informality has been the main key to success and when it was proposed to hold an open day to recruit further members it was supported throughout by all of the members.

The second part of the note describes the planning and operation during the open day which has potentially found six new members from the 20+ that came on the day. The final section is left empty and will be completed in a few months’ time when we know how successful the event was and which areas of advertising were the most useful.
