99th Year Emsworth Horticutural Society is celebrating  its
Message from the Chair
The Emsworth Horticultural Society
Important Notices 
1919 2018
I   was   pleased   to   report   on   a   successful   year   for   the society   at   our   AGM   in   February.      Talks,   garden   visits, open   garden   mornings   and   plant   sales   were   all   well supported   and   appreciated.      After   a   small   decline   in recent   years,   the   Distribution   Hut   was   busier   and   made a   small   surplus.      The   Show   went   well   thanks   to   the   hard work     done     by     the     Show     committee     and     other volunteers.        We    also    fitted    in    an    exhibition    at    the Emsworth   Museum   charting   the   history   of   the   Show.     This   involved   searching   the   paper   archives   from   1922 and   stimulated   the   starting   of   a   digital   archive   organised by   Chris   Shaw.      Suzanne   Holroyd   was   made   a   Life Member   in   recognition   of   her   past   services   to   the   EHS as   Show   Secretary   and   Archivist   and   currently   Stock Manager at the Hut. AGM reports can be found on the website (see below). Looking    forward    to    2019,    we    are    planning    another exhibition   to   celebrate   our   centenary.      The   management committee   is   planning   other   events   as   well.      If   you’d   like to   join   us   we   have   space   for   new   members   to   be   co- opted.        We    need    help    with    publicity    for    example.      Contact    me    on    emshorticultural@gmail.com     for    more informatio n. Lyn Davies (Chair)
EHS Archives Chris   Shaw   has   taken   over   the   digital   archiving   of   the EHS   along   with   a   detailed   record   of   the   paper   archives made   by   Suzanne   Holroyd.   As   might   be   expected   over the   100   years   the   Society   has   been   in   existence,   this material     is     extensive     but     there     are     gaps.     Any contributions   will   be   welcome.   In   particular   it   would   be helpful   if   members   could   search   their   files,   both   paper and   computer,   for   material   between   the   late   1990s   to the   present.   This   is   probably   because   most   people   who wrote   minutes   or   designed   posters   and   flyers   will   have started   using   a   computer   during   the   last   20   years.   Chris is    willing    to    scan    and    digitise    a    small    number    of significant    paper   records   but   cannot   store   paper   and the Emsworth Museum has very limited space. Please   search   for   EHS   records.   These   may   be   in   manila folders,    on    your    current    hard    disc,    backup    storage including   flash   drives,   memory   sticks,   DVD-ROM,   CD- ROM   or   even   floppy   discs.   Let   Chris   know   what   you have, and he will arrange to transfer it.
