January 2021 - WinterUpdate
AGM . Who would have thought that the AGM in 2020 would be the last time members would meet in person for over a year. The AGM covering what turned out to be the Covid year of 2020 will be held via Zoom on Thursday   February   18 th 2021 at 7.30pm. Members will be sent the reports before the meeting, and the joining details. This is your chance to ask questions of the committee on EHS matters. Talks in the coming months have to be on Zoom. The next two talks are run by the horticultural charity Perennial, which helps out employed gardeners (not home gardeners) if they have an accident, lose their tied house when made redundant, or unable to work due to critical personal circumstances. Several wealthy patrons have donated their house and garden to the charity, which maintains and opens them to paying visitors. The fee we pay for the talks supports Perennial. The Hut closed at the beginning of December and we intended to re-open on January 10 th , 2021. However, due to the latest lockdown, we have decided to stay closed for at least the month of January. Members who ordered seeds will be informed by phone or email when they arrive. Seed potatoes are due to be delivered at the beginning of February. We will make arrangements to sell them and inform members by email. If you haven’t got an email address, and want to buy potatoes, look on the website www.emsworthhorticulturalsociety.org.uk , or phone 01243 373810 when they are due in. Membership renewals. With the hut closed you won’t be able to renew your membership there, so please complete the form included in this newsletter and return it to the membership secretary. You can pay your subs by cheque or BACS (contact the membership secretary for details at ehsmembership@outlook.com ). Our offer of a £5 voucher to 2020 members who renew for 2021 closes at the end of March. After this date vouchers will not be issued. Details of all our activities can be found on this newsletter and on the E HS Website Lyn Davies (EHS Chair) mailto:emshorticultural@gmail.com
Enjoy your gardening in 2021

May Plant Sale on Sunday 9th May - 09:30 to 12:00

Our annual plant sale will be held at the EHS Distribution Hut in Washington Road Allotments. Please bring your plants to the Hut by 9.30 am and make sure you return at 12 noon to collect any unsold plants and your money (less 20% towards EHS costs). Please make sure that EACH plant has 2 labels - one with your name and the plant price, and the other with the plant name. Bring your perennials, flowers and vegetables grown from seed and small shrubs. Everything welcome! You can also bring garden sundries – but no very large items. Let’s hope the sun shines!
