Hut Building Weekend

Over the weekend of the 4/5 February work restarted on the Tackle Store extension to the Belfry. All the timber and most of the fixings had been delivered during the week ready for a big push to get the roof started. On Saturday a number of Belfryites including Dany, Tyrone, Mike W, Hasket, Madphil, Toby and Henry B put up the timber for the ceiling / attic room floor and prepared the ground to get some of the roof up the next day.

Belfry Bulletin Archive Online!

In January 1947 the BEC published its first regular journal, the Belfry Bulletin. The “BB” contains a vast wealth of knowledge and information on the clubs activities both at home and abroad. While the club library contains the entire back issue it is not easy to research.

Andy MacGregor took up the challenge and reproduced every single issue as readable text, a task which took him four years to complete. This is now available online and for the first time it is possible to search though almost 60 years of the clubs records.

While every BB is online, only registered BEC members have access to the last 12 months issues. Enjoy!
