EHS Committee Members 2019 - 2020
Winter 2020 2019, our centenary year, gave us the impetus for new exciting events, and a big vote of thanks is due to all those who contributed, especially our committee: Daphne Tomsett, Susan Sinnett-Jones, Jan Butler, Colin Beale, Chris Shaw, Richard Suter, Shiraz Jamal, Michael and Faith Ponsonby. Our AGM is on Thursday 20 th February 2020 and we are looking for new committee members to replace those who are retiring: we need a Show Secretary, Chair, Treasurer, Secretary and committee members. EHS membership is currently 380 households, about 500 people, and yet we struggle to find people to take over from those of us have been working for the EHS for many years. Please think what you can offer and put yourself forward we don’t want the society to collapse for lack of organisers . The Hut is transformed! Colin Beale and Richard Suter took over the running of the hut in the autumn, and over the Christmas holiday have changed the layout of the store making it lighter and more accessible come along and see for yourself! I have wanted someone to increase the publicity of the EHS for some time, and I’m pleased to report that Brenda Abbott has taken this role see the Village Magazine PO9 for her first contributions. I hope you enjoy our forthcoming programme of talks, trips, open garden mornings and the Show, make good use of the Hut and volunteer to help make 2020 a good year for the EHS .
