Emsworth Horticultural Society
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. (01243 377459)Chris Shaw
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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
