Website Upgrades - 27th October 2014
Over the next few weeks we will be creating the new "Members Area", where we are hoping to post lots of interesting content for use by members. Log-in details will be sent out to members in due course.
It is with much sorrow that we announce that Doug Joiner, our long time Chairman, died on the evening of Monday 8th September. He had dealt in a practical way with ill health for a long period of time, focusing always on getting back to work and pushing on with promoting horse logging and supporting the BHLCT Apprenticeship scheme. His death nevertheless seems untimely . He will be very much missed by many, networking was one of his special skills.
The BHL had a very successful stand at the biannual Association of Professional Foresters Show in September. An excellent write-up can be found in the latest edition of Timber Tongues, our quarterly Newsletter!
Courses for 2015
We are currently exploring training opportunities for 2015 that could be of interest to anyone who works or wishes to work with horses. We are looking at offering a Bare foot trimming event, a weekend of Natural Horsemanship and possibly a guide to the skills required to running a small business successfully. We may also run an Emergency First Aid at work day and will explore the possibilities of running again the 4 day Woodland Management training. Details will be posted in the Members Area
and the Become a Horse Logger
page in due course.
