Committee News January 2018

Not all good news on this occasion, difficulties and split opinions at a recent committee meeting resulted in the Chairman and Membership Secretary standing down from office. It was decided by the remaining officers that they would withdraw their nominations and give the committee and membership the opportunity to select a new team at the AGM in March to carry the NHBS to the next stage of it’s journey.

The success of this action will depend on nominations sent in by Society members to the General Secretary not less than 14 days before the date of the AGM, (Nomination forms will be included with the AGM papers and will be shortly mailed out to Society members)


The Collectors Anthology books both volume one and volume two have been re-priced at £16.00 each plus postage to the UK £3.00 – Europe £7.00 – Rest of the World £11.00. This has been done to reflect the actual postal charges and to bring it in line with the method of charging on all other NHBS products.


Here are the designs of the 2019 Membership Brass which will be circulated to Society Members with the AGM papers and we look forward to receiving your votes by email post or telephone quoting your name, membership number and of course the number of your preferred design (this competition is open to NHBS members only)
