Chris Shaw has taken over the digital archiving of the EHS along with a detailed record of the paper archives made by Suzanne Holroyd. As might be expected over the 100 years the Society has been in existence, this material is extensive but there are gaps. Any contributions will be welcome. In particular it would be helpful if members could search their files, both paper and computer, for material between the late 1990s to the present. This is probably because most people who wrote minutes or designed posters and flyers will have started using a computer during the last 20 years. Chris is willing to scan and digitise a small number of significantpaper records but cannot store paper and the Emsworth Museum has very limited space.Please search for EHS records. These may be in manila folders, on your current hard disc, backup storage including flash drives, memory sticks, DVD-ROM, CD-ROM or even floppy discs. Let Chris know what you have, and he will arrange to transfer it. (01243 377459)Chris Shaw
St Wilfrid’s Hospice has been serving the local community for over 30 years. Demand for our services continues to increase and our current building is no longer fit-for-purpose. Therefore in 2014 we embarked upon an ambitious project to raise at least £15.5 million to build a new, modern Hospice; a ‘dream-building’ with the infrastructure to enable us to support the increasing number of people in need of our specialist care and support, now and in the future. Construction of our fantastic new building began early this year, with a completion date of spring 2019 planned. Thanks to the generosity of our local community we have made great progress in our fundraising and currently have 86% of our overall target. However, we still need to raise £2.1 million in the next 12 months, in order to make our dream become a reality. We have been offered a stand at this year’s Festival of Flowers at Chichester Cathedral. As before, we would like to make this a real success and raise even more towards our new Hospice.I am emailing today to ask if members of the Emsworth Horticultural Society would consider supporting St Wilfrid’s DREAMBUILDING campaign by donating any plants, flowers or shrubs for us to sell on our stand? These can be absolutely anything so long as they are in a sellable condition, potted and labelled accordingly. The event takes place between 30th May and 2nd June, so we would need to be able to collect plants as close to 30th May as possible
