Midlands, Wales and South West

Midlands, Wales and South West

The UKHA Midlands was first set up in the area of Birmingham in the mid 1980’s, and soon extended across the Midlands. In 2001 the Midlands hosted the first National UKHA Conference outside London, this was then followed in 2003 and 2006. We have organised several National UKHA Summer Dinner Dances. Our members in the Midlands are now joined by Wales and the South West, transferring our title to a region.

The meetings are held bi-monthly and range from educational, informative and fun do come and join us and network with like minded people. Come along and see what you can gain from your UKHA membership.
