Notice: Ghar Parau Foundation
Ghar Parau Foundation (GPF) The GPF was originally set up as a sub-charity of BCRA. However, changes in the status of sub-charities and in banking regulations have made it increasingly difficult for the GPF trustees to operate. After discussions between the trustees of GPF and BCRA, we have agreed that it would be desirable to close the present GPF sub-charity and to re-establish it as an independent charity in its own right. Three motions will be presented to the BCRA AGM. For details please see the AGM notice on our web site.

BCRA Annual Review 2017
BCRA Annual Review 2017 ? our review of last year's activities ? will be available for free download prior to the AGM and Science Symposium. A small number will be available on paper to purchase at the meeting at a price of ?5. The Review contains a copy of the draft minutes of the 2017 AGM, and the 2017 Annual Report and Accounts that we submit to the Charity Commission.
