Message from the Chair
The Emsworth Horticultural Society
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.
