Plans for the 2017 programme are well in hand and should be complete by the AGM on Thursday February 16th2017. At the risk of sounding like a scratched record, we need more members to get involved with the organisation of both the Society and the Show. The main committee of the Society has shrunk over the year with three members leaving for personal reasons so new committee members would be welcome. We are desperate for someone to be the overall organiser/manager for an enthusiastic Show Committee. I have been standing in since September and won’t continue after the AGM. Additionally we’re looking for a show secretary, to manage the marquee team, a traffic manager to organise the car parks, buses and surrounding roads and finally someone or a team to run a raffle. Contact Lyn Davies on firstname.lastname@example.org 01243 373810 for more details. A nomination form can be found at the end of this newsletter together with notice of the AGM.Lyn Davies (EHS Chair)
EHS Archives Suzanne Holroyd has reviewing, sorting and summarising the past records of the Society. They are now ready to be donated to the Emsworth Museum – an achievement for which we’re very grateful. This is the end of Suzanne’s tenure as archivist, and we’re looking for someone to continue with the work. Please contact me if you’re interested. Lyn Davies.
