The winner of the 2014/15 BSHM Undergraduate Essay Prize is Edwin Reynolds, an Oxford University maths student.

The Portuguese Mathematical Society and the BSHM have launched a new website, Philamat: Mathematics – a philatelic history, based on the work of former BSHM President Robin Wilson on mathematical stamps.

BSHM currently holds about 100 second-hand mathematical texts of various kinds. These are the property of a number of former members. These books are essentially ‘free’ but anyone wanting any is asked to cover the costs of postage and packing, if any.

The closing date for entries for the 2014/15 BSHM Undergraduate Essay Prize is 1 May 2015.

The sixth joint meeting of the BSHM and the CSHPM will take place as part of MAA Mathfest in Washington, DC, USA, 5th-8th August 2015. A call for papers has been issued.

Robin Wilson, BSHM President 2012-2014, gives his review of BSHM activities in 2014 in his President's Report.
