The group recognises a number of Projects, some of which are under way and some proposed – some BTPHG sponsored and some proposed by individual members. All will take some time to complete but at least the first steps have been taken.

If you can assist in any of these projects, or have any document, publication, photograph or artefact which you would be willing to donate or allow to be photographed, digitally or otherwise recorded, please contact the relevant Project Manager (links below).
