Welcome to the website of the Bournemouth Beach Hut Association (BBHA), we're working hard to make this a useful source of information for the beach hut owners and tenants of Bournemouth so please keep checking the site.
The site has been configured with your current membership number, this becomes your user name on the website, your password will be sent to you in the latest version of the association's Newsletter. If you are a member of BBHA already and would like your log-in details to access the member's area, please email your name and membership number to and we'll reply with your log-in details. The members section is updated regularly as we receive new information relating to owning a Beach Hut in Bournemouth.
BBHA was set up to advise, represent and liaise with Bournemouth Borough Council and other authorities on behalf of the organisation's membership on all matters relating to the ownership of Beach Huts. The association is headed up by a committee of 3 and we are currently looking for a secretary, so if you feel that you have the qualities to help then please get in touch to offer your services.
Our committee have been busy ensuring that we have the support of local business's, these local business's offer discount for members of the association so make sure that you use your membership card to its advantage, this also ensures that the local business's recognise the support of our members.
As we have moved platform and domain name when we reconfigured the website users will be requested to reset their password on their first login, this is to allow you to set the password to something more memorable to you, this ensures that it is easier for members to login to the website, this is where you can find members specific content, forums, instant messaging, documents and more.
To make it easier you can also use your social media accounts to login to the website, these will need to be linked to your original membership number account, however once completed will allow you to login with some of the major social media accounts.
TIPS: Synchronise your different social media accounts to your BBHA account and log on to the site with your social media account. This does not store any of your social media account logins on the BBHA site, just uses the features of login to authenticate who you are.
