Thank you for your support for BALH during 2018. The renewal form for your 2019 BALH subscription will be sent to you by email or by post  (if we do not have your email address) early in October. All subscription rates for 2019 are unchanged and remain very good value. So that we can continue to send you information about BALH news, events and publications, we would appreciate it if you could complete, sign and return, by email or post, the GDPR consent form sent with your subscription renewal form.

If you are a UK taxpayer, please Gift Aid your subscription. BALH will receive an additional 25p for each £1 at no cost to yourself. In this way you can support the Association’s long term aims to promote local history throughout the UK.
