BHAC is a
unique project set up to facilitate the needs
of the local community in preserving their history.
The Centre has archive material, which includes
oral histories, videos, photographs and documents,
carefully collected and preserved for posterity.
BHAC provide a focus for people
in the local community who want to research
local/family history. We also provide the opportunity
for residents and past residents, both at home
and abroad, to record and preserve their own
Community members are active
as friends of BHAC and many projects are carried
out with other partner community groups. Regular
activities at the Centre include Coffee mornings
for BHAC Members and a Seafarers Group that
thrives on the reminiscences of dockers and
Community courses held at the
Centre include creative writing, embroidery
and oral history sessions.
