The first edition appeared in 1970 - at that time it was a quarterly newsletter produced by the Upper Blue Mountains Conservation Society.
The name "Hut News" was adopted in March 1996.
In 1996 the Lower and Upper Blue Mountains Conservation Societies merged. The June 1996 edition was the last Upper Blue Mountains edition.
In November 2019 we published our 375th edition.
After 24 years as Newsletter Editor has "retired". Christine’s contribution has been outstanding and her ability to put together a diverse and engaging publication will be sorely missed.
Christine became a life member of the Society in 2015.
Susan Crick is the editor of Hut News. You can email Susan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: The deadline for submitting articles is the 20th of the month.
NB. Some minor changes to fonts and images were required to create the PDFs in the earlier editions. In addition some artwork (mainly sketches) which was manually added to the copy before it was printed, are not included. Editions before 1996 are scanned - text can't be cut and pasted from these editions.
