Autumn 2019 . Thank you to all of you who volunteered and made the Emsworth Show a success in our centenary year. Special thanks to Faith Ponsonby, chair of the show committee, who masterminded the move, and to Jan Butler who organised the marquee which is at the heart of the show for the EHS. Our autumn programme got off to a jolly start with a visit to the Bombay Gin Distillery near Whitchurch, followed by tour round Hardy’s Cottage Garden Plants with Rosy Hardy and a chance to buy her lovely plants. More jollity was in evidence at the entertaining talk given by Chris Bird about apples and apple growing. At the Hut, I’m pleased to report that Colin Beale has taken over as Stock Manager and Richard Suter is in charge of ordering seeds, onion sets, garlic and potatoes. Jan Butler will become Volunteer Manager in 2020. Planning for next year has started and what is most evident is that we need more volunteers to run the EHS in all its activities, for example at the Hut, the Show, working on the committee, delivering newsletters, posters and organising events. Details of all our activities can be found on this newsletter and on the website www.emsworthhorticulturalsociety.org.uk Lyn Davies emshorticultural@gmail.com
