The Josephine Birchenough Bursary Fund Award to Society Members.
If you are a member of the Society your story will automatically be entered for the Josephine Birchenough Bursary Award.
Josephine Birchenough was a founder member of the Society and an enthusiastic supporter of our activities over many years. Following her death in 1994 some money was donated by members in her memory and it was decided to use this to establish a Bursary Award scheme.
Each year the President and Vice Presidents judge what they consider to be the best articles from the previous year's journals. The awards then are presented at the Society AGM, and consist of a number of prizes - currently £40, £30 and a number at £10. For more details go to Josephine Birchenough Award
