The BAHS, like many voluntary organisations, can do with help in running the society.

If you wish to help in any way then please contact the secretary of the BAHS by email to discuss further. There isn't a need to become a committee member and your help might just be a couple of hours each month.

Some areas where help is needed are given below but any help is appreciated.

History Centre Manager

The BAHS operates the History Centre located at the back of of the Blakeney Village Hall. A new manager is required.

History Centre Volunteers

Volunteers are needed to help open the History Centre on scheduled dates and on other dates as agreed with members and visitors.

Membership Secretary

This role involves collecting membership subscriptions at our meetings and by post and updating our membership system, issuing receipts etc. The bulk of this work tends to take place at the start of our membership year and the first two or three meetings. Training is available on how to use the membership system which is part of our website

Minutes Secretary

A minutes secretary would be be much appreciated by the current committee to take notes and produce minutes of our committee meetings. We hold around 6 to 8 committee meetings a year.


A small group meet a few times a year to put together a programme of events and to then arrange speakers.

Meetings Organiser

We could do with help in running our meetings from organising venues, setting up equipment to greeting our speakers when they arrive.


If you are able to help with refreshments at our meetings held at the Harbour Rooms. We meet around eight times a year and at most meetings serve around twenty teas and coffees. The intention is to have a small rota so that you would help out three or four times each year.
