HBSC Bulletin Issue 40

Published 23:00 on 8 Feb 2024

Welcome to edition 40 of the Bulletin, the regular communication keeping you informed of things happening at HBSC.


We are so shocked and sad to learn of the passing of Phil, our membership secretary. He will be sorely missed. He did an amazing job at being membership secretary and a fantastic member for that we are so grateful for his contribution. Please bear with us as we work through the renewals. Please refer to membership emails sent in December for further information. If you have paid your membership fees but your account is showing it is outstanding, please give it a little time to clear because we are in the process of changing Treasurers and the posting of fee payments will be delayed.
