This   photograph   is   the   earliest   in   our   archives,   taken   in the   1950s   at   the   Annual   Show   of   the   Emsworth   and District    Allotments    and    Gardens    Association,    in    the British   Legion   Hall.   We’d   like   to   know   who   these   chaps are   and   also   ask   if   any   of   the   EMS   readers   have   other photos   or   memorabilia   from   the   early   days   of   the   EHS. Contact the EHS by sending an email to: info@emsworthhorticulturalsociety.org.uk
EHS Archives and the Centenary Year - 2019
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 01243 377459, EHS digital archivist.
Help needed at the Hut
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.
Can you identify these two individuals? If you can, please let  us know.
