October Update
A programme with a difference this autumn. We are very aware that EHS members haven’t been able to enjoy the wide range of activities that we are usually able to provide, but we are arranging some events in October and November, and we are also giving a little something to those that renew their membership for 2021. Zoom     talk:     An     Allotment     Year’ on Thursday 15 th October, 7.30 to 8.30pm. Alan Williams will give an overview of the vegetable growing on an allotment over the course of a year, looking at the different seasons, what’s happening when, sprinkled with anecdotes and stories from his experiences. He will also reflect on how this year has been a bit different. Chris Shaw will be compering the meeting. To join, all you have to do is click on the link which will be sent out to you nearer the time and follow the prompts which pop up. If you haven’t been to a Zoom meeting before and would like to have a practice beforehand, reply to the email and let us know. We hope to have a Zoom talk in November too we’ll send details out by email nearer the time. £5   voucher   to   spend   at   the   Hut   with   all   2021   renewals. Complete the renewal form attached to this newsletter, and with your membership card will come a £5 voucher to use at the Hut. New for this year is the opportunity to pay by BACS. You can renew your membership at the Hut if you prefer. Committee    changes. Normally these are made at the AGM, but they have had to be done earlier and will be ratified at the AGM, which will probably have to be held via Zoom on February 18 th 2021. Michael Ponsonby (Treasurer) and Jan Butler (Show Secretary) have both retired after many years in post. We would like to thank them for all they’ve done for the EHS and wish them well for the future. Brenda Abbott has joined the committee as Membership Secretary. Colin Beale has taken over as Treasurer, and remains a Co-chair with Lyn Davies. A small team, headed by Richard Suter, is going to run the competitions and the marquee at the Show. Richard is also in charge of ordering the stock at the hut.
