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.

St   Wilfrid’s   Hospice   has   been   serving   the   local   community   for   over   30   years.   Demand   for   our   services   continues to   increase   and   our   current   building   is   no   longer   fit-for-purpose.   Therefore   in   2014   we   embarked   upon   an ambitious   project   to   raise   at   least   £15.5   million   to   build   a   new,   modern   Hospice;   a   ‘dream-building’   with   the infrastructure   to   enable   us   to   support   the   increasing   number   of   people   in   need   of   our   specialist   care   and support, now and in the future.  Construction   of   our   fantastic   new   building   began   early   this   year,   with   a   completion   date   of   spring   2019   planned. Thanks   to   the   generosity   of   our   local   community   we   have   made   great   progress   in   our   fundraising   and   currently have   86%   of   our   overall   target.   However,   we   still   need   to   raise   £2.1   million   in   the   next   12   months,   in   order   to make our dream become a reality. We   have   been   offered   a   stand   at   this   year’s   Festival   of   Flowers   at   Chichester   Cathedral.   As   before,   we   would like to make this a real success and raise even more towards our new Hospice.   I   am   emailing   today   to   ask   if   members   of   the   Emsworth   Horticultural   Society   would   consider   supporting   St Wilfrid’s   DREAMBUILDING   campaign   by   donating   any   plants,   flowers   or   shrubs   for   us   to   sell   on   our   stand? These   can   be   absolutely   anything   so   long   as   they   are   in   a   sellable   condition,   potted   and   labelled   accordingly. The   event   takes   place   between   30th   May   and   2nd   June,   so   we   would   need   to   be   able   to   collect   plants   as   close to 30th May as possible
