Emsworth Horticultural Society
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 significant paper 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
