Anyone may submit a news item on local history which, if appropriate and relevant to the activities of the BAHS, will be shown in our news feed.
Please only add or comment on news items. Other items may be added using the guestbook forums.
If you wish to create a news item (known as a post) to be shared with members and visitors to this website, please complete the form. If the form is completed successfully then it will be reviewed by one or more members of the BAHS Committee and if acceptable it will be approved. If approved it will be visible to all members and visitors to the website. Any member or visitor may then reply (comment) on the news item (post). In turn a reply may be replied (commented on). Like the original post all replies are also moderated and, if acceptable, approved.
Important: Please read the explanation on how to complete the form that follows the form especially if this is the first time you are adding a news item.
Success? If you are successful with submitting your news item you will see a message say ‘Success! Thank you for your submission. Before it appears on the website it will be submitted for approval by a member of the BAHS Committee.’. Otherwise it hasn’t been successful.
Below is an explanation of the fields in the ‘Add News Item’ form. Please read if this is your first submission.
Your Name: Please provide your full name.
Post Title: Please provide a brief explanation of the news items that acts as the title of the news item.

Antispam Question: To be able to submit the form you need to answer this question. Apologies for this but without this question the Society is bombarded undesirable automated posts.
