Important Notices 
2017   was   a   good   year   for   the   Society.      Membership remained   stable,   the   hut   did   better   than   it   has   done   in recent   years,   and   we   had   a   good   selection   of   talks,   trips and   open   garden   mornings.   The   weather   on   show   day was   perfect   and   the   show   was   very   successful.      In   June we   held   an   exhibition   entitled   ‘Emsworth   Show:   Then and   Now’   at   the   Emsworth   Museum,   based   on   the   EHS archives,   going   back   to   1922.      All   this   work   has   been done   by   our   members,   both   on   the   committee   and   off, apart   the   Show   where   much   work   was   done   by   non- members.      I   would   like   to   thank   everyone   for   their   help and support.
