We're merging websites

Updated: Jul 15, 2022

From 6th July 2022 our trusty website will be absorbed into this website, bringing all the important information under one roof.

We're doing this to simplify the experience for members and visitors, and also to simplify administration for the management committee.

From that date, whether you go to or, you'll come to this website. Hopefully. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ

Everything under one roof

Having a single website makes it easier to design an intuitive user experience. No more switching between websites; everything should be seamless. And if it isn't, please let us know and we can work on making it so!

This also makes things easier for the management committee, as we only have one website to administer, and one administration tool to learn. We can also take advantage of a bunch of ready-made Wix features we can easily drop into our website, like we did with the Blog, Events, and Shop pages.

From broadcast to on-demand

We're changing the way BIEPA communicates to make it easier for you to focus on what interests you. We want to reduce the amount of email you have to consume, and let you come to the website to find what you're interested in, when it suits you.

It's a bit like the transition from broadcast TV to catch-up TV. Rather than broadcasting everything out by email, you can get what you need from the website on-demand, when you need it. And what's on the website is always up to date; we don't need to keep emailing out corrections when things change.

If we rely heavily on email, our emails can get buried under everything else in your inbox โ€” and if you miss an email, you miss out. We can also get blocked by email service providers if we send out too many emails โ€” it looks like we're sending spam.

Come and get it

Now all our information should be available on the website, and you always see the most up to date information, so you can just drop by any time to find out what you need to know:

  • Want to hear interesting news from other members? Check out the Blog page, and filter by category or search for words.

  • Want to know what events are coming up? Head over to the Events page and browse the upcoming events or scroll through the calendar.

  • Need to get some details of a particular event? Find the event on the
