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.

We’ve   lost   a   few   stalwart   helpers   this   year   and   are   looking   for   new   volunteer   cashiers and   servers.   Cashiers   write   out   the   orders,   handle   money   and   enrol   new   members.     Servers   collect   from   the   shelves,   measure   textiles,   weigh   out   non-chemical   products and   lift   and   carry   items   (up   to   25kg)   to   cars   if   needed.      Knowledge   of   horticulture   and products   is   helpful   too.      If   you   are   interested   or   would   like   to   know   more   please   make yourself    known    at    the    hut,    or    contact    Lyn    Davies    on    01243    373810    or    email emshorticultural@gmail.com.
Geoff,   who   used   help   at   the   Hut   sadly   died   recently.      His   allotment   at   Washington   Road was   beautifully   productive   and   he   was   well   liked   for   his   friendly,   kind   and   helpful   nature. He will be missed.  Our sympathies go to his family
