New HVA Address  

You may have spotted our new address.  The vast majority of our newsletters, information, applications and payments are now by email and via the web site. This route makes everything quicker and easier for our volunteers, but we do still need a mailing address for the odd cheque or application form.  If you need to send us something in the post, please remember to use this new address (letters sent to our old address will be sadly be returned to sender).

Newsletter

This is one of the real value benefits HVA membership brings, we publish on the 1st of each month, and distribute to over 300 members! Please feel free to send over details of any exhibitions/events/workshops for inclusion in the newsletter and publicity on our website. We are here to promote you!

We have a conversation in our Private Facebook group happening now, members are sharing their Twitter name so that we can all find and follow each other.
