NHBS Newsletters  


Since the formation of the NHBS in 1975 a newsletter has been produced for the membership and mailed out twice a year as a part of the membership package.  Its objective was and still is to inform Society members of the latest news, to produce articles of interest and to advertise the many publications and special brasses over the years.  The current Editor is Jim Speed (pictured Here) who will be pleased to hear from you should you have a story to tell or an article to share.

It is the ambition of the committee in order to save on printing and postage to encourage as many members as possible to agree to receive the colour edition by email.  It was decided by the committee to include two complete newsletters for this purpose (Newsletters 76 - 77), and thereafter to include extracts or articles of particular interest as examples of the members newletter.

 When the newsletter started it was produced regionally, the earliest regional edition found in the NHBS archive is No 3 beautifully hand written by NHBS founder Terry Keegan and would probably have been written in 1976 for the Midlands and North Wales Region.  The first National edition came out in March 1981 and the number then went back to 1
