The EHS ArchivesPlease 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
