The EHS Archives P lease     will     a     person     younger     than     me     consider maintaining   the   EHS   Archive.      Most   of   the   papers   are now   in   Emsworth   Museum   but   there   is   a   folder   and   a box    file    with    stuff    that    may    be    useful    for    future exhibitions.        Ideally    the    person    taking    over    would maintain   a   precedent   book   listing   important   events   and decisions. Please   contact   a   member   of   the   committee   to   arrange   a handover. Suzanne Holroyd
