Looking for New Committee Members
The Emsworth Horticultural Society began in 1919 with the Allotment Association. In our 2018 exhibition celebrating the history of the Emsworth Show, we trawled the archives for material, which had been usefully organised by Suzanne Holroyd and stored by the museum. Chris Shaw also searched through Portsmouth News articles stored on film, held by Portsmouth Library and West Sussex Gazette in Chichester. Even so, records were hard to come by especially visually interesting material such as photographs. It was not until well into the new millennium, when digital cameras began to be more widely used, that photographs appeared in significant numbers. And it is only comparatively recently that people have thought about storing digital photographs on their computers or even more recently, online. The EHS would be interested to see any photographs you may have, whether printed or digital, of EHS gardening events, outings and trips, open-gardens, shows (for example of your winning entries!) or other EHS events you may have photographed. Do you have interesting stories to tell of any of the EHS events? In addition the EMS newspaper, which is delivered 4 time a year, would be interested in reports and articles about EHS events. We would like copies too. We can easily make copies and credit the photos and stories. Clearly it would be helpful if we knew when the event took place (at least to the nearest year!) If you can help, contact Chris Shaw EHS digital archivist. Tel: 01243 377459 or email to EHS Archives
