Publications

 

The Newsletter was introduced to compliment the winter presentations, by exposing to members and others, the contents of the BLHG archive.

 

The first Newsletter was published in July 2008 some six months after the formation of BLHG. It was published again in January 2009, August 2009 and in February 2010. All four published Newsletters can be found here.
A fifth edition was prepared but, due to issues over cost and sourcing material, was never completed.

 

We continue to review the viability of publishing further Newsletters.
