Message from the Chair
I   was   pleased   to   be   able   to   report   at   our   recent   AGM that   2016   had   been   a   good   year   for   the   EHS   with   a   full programme    of    events    including    a    great    Show.        The Distribution   Hut   continued   to   be   a   centre   for   the   society as   well   as   a   place   to   buy   horticultural   necessities.      The members      of      the      Management      Committee      and Distribution     and     Show     Sub-committees,     including Graham   Steel,   who   stepped   down   as   Chair   of   the   Show Committee   and   Zena   Chaddock   who   is   stepping   down as   membership   secretary,   were   thanked   for   their   hard work   in   making   the   year   a   success.   However,   I   was concerned     that     both     the     Management     and     Show committees   had   shrunk   over   the   year,   and   without   new members   the   Show   and   the   EHS   itself   would   be   unable to   continue.      Three   members   came   forward   to   join   the management   committee,   but   we   still   key   organisers   for the Show: Chair, Traffic Manager and Raffle Manager. The   Treasurer,   Michael   Ponsonby,   reported   that   due   to the    Show    making    a    surplus    this    year    there    was    an increase   in   the   Society’s   net   assets.      This   has   boosted the   ‘rainy   day   reserve’   to   a   healthier   but   still   lower   than satisfactory   level.      Membership   has   continued   to   fall, reducing     income     to     pay     for     administrative     and miscellaneous    expenditure    and    the    ‘third    Thursday’ meetings.      It   was   decided   to   increase   the   membership fee to £7 in 2018.
