FOR MEMBERS ONLY...

A small group of members are in the process of checking the physical photo albums that contain the Hennigan Collection, latterly looked after by the late Bill Lynn. Photographs that are not already online are being added to the photo archive, and so far 144 images, mainly of older types that did not survive until Grouping, have been scanned and put online for access by Group members. More will follow!

JOURNAL BINDERS

The green Journal binders have now sold out. We can only order them in multiples of 50 which as you can imagine take up a lot of storage space. Therefore as was the position 4 years ago, I am now opening up a waiting list and once I have interest in 20 binders I will place an order. To register interest in buying a binder please email sales@nbrstudygroup.co.uk
