There seems to be a Photography theme this month - with interviews of two HVA members with different approaches.  Also put the date of Tuesday 17 April in your diary as we are delighted that renowned Wildlife Photographer - Andy Sands will be giving a talk to HVA Members.  Plus, the Photographic exhibition at the Upstairs Gallery in Berkhamsted.

Welcome to the following members who joined HVA in February

Paul Hillary(Welwyn Garden City), Tal Shribman(St. Albans), Kathy Glenister(North Herts), Kelly O'Gorman(Cheshunt), Gill Sheldon(Barnet), Dominque Conte(Hoddesdon), Angela Townsend(Watford), Stephen Lowe(Walkern) and 2 schools: The Chauncy School in Ware, and Tring School.

A few admin matters that require your attention  ....

To take advantage of your £5 early renewal/loyalty discount your HVA membership fee needs be paid by 31 March ... and if at all possible done on-line to keep the data entry work done by our volunteers to a minimum. 

And, we have recently included date of birth on our membership records, to assist in the compilation of statistical information we are asked for when completing applications for sponsorship - please would you update this field when you check over your membership details.
