Emsworth Horticultural Society
The    Emsworth    Horticultural    Society    began    in    1919    with    the    Allotment    Association.    In    our    2018    exhibition celebrating   the   history   of   the   Emsworth   Show,   we   trawled   the   archives   for   material,   which   had   been   usefully organised   by   Suzanne   Holroyd   and   stored   by   the   museum.   Chris   Shaw   also   searched   through   Portsmouth   News articles   stored   on   film,   held   by   Portsmouth   Library   and   West   Sussex   Gazette   in   Chichester.   Even   so,   records   were hard   to   come   by   —   especially   visually   interesting   material   such   as   photographs.   It   was   not   until   well   into   the   new millennium,    when    digital    cameras    began    to    be    more    widely    used,    that    photographs    appeared    in    significant numbers.   And   it   is   only   comparatively   recently   that   people   have   thought   about   storing   digital   photographs   on   their computers or even more recently, online. The   EHS   would   be   interested   to   see   any   photographs   you   may   have,   whether   printed   or   digital,   of   EHS   gardening events,   outings   and   trips,   open-gardens,   shows   (for   example   of   your   winning   entries!)   or   other   EHS   events   you   may have photographed. Do you have interesting stories to tell of any of the EHS events? In   addition   the   EMS   newspaper,   which   is   delivered   4   time   a   year,   would   be   interested   in   reports   and   articles   about EHS events. We would like copies too. We   can   easily   make   copies   and   credit   the   photos   and   stories.   Clearly   it   would   be   helpful   if   we   knew   when   the   event took place (at least to the nearest year!) If you can help, contact Chris Shaw 01243 377459, EHS digital archivist.
At   the   Willis   Museum   and   Sainsbury   Gallery,   Basingstoke   we currently   have   a   special   exhibition   that   will,   I   believe,   be   of great     interest     to     yourself     and     your     horticultural     club’s members. This   is   the   high   profile   International   Garden   Photographer   of the   Year   Exhibition   run   in   association   with   the   Royal   Botanic Gardens,    Kew.    It    features    the    latest    winning    entries    and runners-up    in    classes    that    include,    for    example,    “Beautiful gardens”,    “The    beauty    of    plants”,    “Wildflower    landscapes”. “Wildlife   in   the   garden”,   and   “Young   garden   photographer   of the   year”.   About   48   in   number,   and   reproduced   in   very   large sizes, the photographs are truly international in scope.  Besides   British   entries,   you   will,   for   instance,   see   entries   from   several   European   countries,   as   well   as   from   India, Malaysia,   China,   Australia   and   the   USA,   and   to   describe   the   quality   and   artistry   of   each   pictures   as   amazing   is   no exaggeration. The   exhibition   will   be   on   view   in   the   Willis’s   Sainsbury   Gallery   until   Saturday   September   29.   The   museum   is   open Tuesdays   to   Fridays   1000-1700,   and   Saturdays   1000-1600.   Admission   is   free   but   donations   are   welcome   and   are of   vital   importance   to   the   Hampshire   Cultural   Trust   that   runs   the   Willis   along   with   many   of   the   county's   other museums. A voluntary donation of £3 per person is suggested. The   Willis   is   housed   in   a   fine   1830s   building   (formerly   the   Town   Hall)   situated   on   the   north   side   of   the   Market Place,   postcode   RG21   7QD.   There   is   much   else   of   interest   to   see   there,   and   many   visitors   like   to   round   off   their visit   with   refreshments   in   the   museum’s   popular   “Mayor’s   Parlour”   tea   room.   Further   information   about   the   Willis Museum may be found on its website. https://www.hampshireculture.org.uk/willis-museum-and-sainsbury-gallery Everyone   at   the   Willis   will   be   most   grateful   if   you   would   kindly   bring   this   exhibition   to   the   attention   of   your members, and hopefully we will have the pleasure of seeing you there. Yours sincerely, John Hollands, Friends of the Willis Museum Publicity Officer John Hollands <jfho241@outlook.com>
