Message from The Show Chair
With   the   2018   Show   only   a   short   time   away,   now,   I   am getting   really   excited   at   the   new   stalls   and   arena   events we   will   have,   especially   the   Jago   Kitkar   Race   from   the Sussex   Army   Cadets.         The   rain   has   come   just   in   time for   all   the   lovely   flowers   and   vegetables   to   be   at   their best    in    the    huge    Horticultural    marquee,    and    I    know many    local    people    are        working    on    their    crafts    and photographic   exhibits,   as   well   as   children   making   their miniature   gardens,   paintings   and   handwriting   entries.        Entering   an   exhibit   (by   6   pm   on      August   22nd)   costs very   little,   so   why   not   give   it   a   go   this   year,   there   are even   recipes   in   the   domestic   section   you   could   try   your hand at!  Check here to view the Show Schedule .   We   have   nearly   100   stalls   and   entertainments   around the   grounds,   many   familiar   ones,   like   'Bubble   and..'   who started   a   few   years   ago   with   us,   and   have   now   many accolades,   and   the   lovely   steam   train   and   donkey   rides.        But   you   are   welcome   to   bring   picnics   and   a   rug   and   just enjoy   the   music   and   the   main   arena   events.      If   you   are a   doggie   person,      bring   your   dog   along   to   enter   the   Dog Show,   and   be   the   dog   most   like   its   owner,   or   with   the waggiest   tail!      Compared   with   other   local   Shows,   it   is really super value for money.   We   can   still   use   some   extra   hands   over   the   Show weekend...    I    have    been    adding    up    the    volunteer hours,   and,   including   time   spent   earlier   in   the   year, we   must   have   wonderful   teams   of   helpers   giving over   1000   hours   of   work   at   least   between   them   to put   on   this   community   event.         Do   ring   me   if   you would like to join one of our teams. The    Show    could    not    happen    without    our    generous sponsors,   who   give   us   financial   help   to   offset   the   costs of   about   £25,000   for   all   the   entertainers,   infrastructure like   buses   and   the   marquees,   and   prizes.      Additionally many   offer   'help   in   kind',   like   the   Tier   family,   who   let   us use    their    field    for    stallholders'    parking,    Emsworth Hardware,   who   lend   us   their   shop   window   to   display   the cups    and,    this    year,    Henry    Adams,    who    put    estate agent   notice   boards   up   advertising   the   Show,   as   well   as lots of others.   A huge thank you to them all. So,   rain   or   shine,   I   shall   look   forward   to   seeing   many   of you enjoying the fun on August Bank Holiday Monday!

THE EMSWORTH HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY This   Society,   founded   in   1919,   is   run   by   and   for   the   benefit   of   its members.     Although     an     Emsworth     Society     we     welcome members from other areas.   Membership    is    £7    per    household    per    year    available    at    the Distribution   Store,   Washington   Road   Allotment   Site   (10   am   to 12   noon   Sunday   mornings),   at   any   of   our   widely   advertised talks,   in   the   Information   Tent   at   the   Show   or   visit   our   website. Membership includes free entry to our popular talks.   The   Society   could   not   be   successful   without   the   involvement   of so   many   of   its   members.   Members   organise   and   help   with   the Distribution    Store    and    many    other    tasks,    which    keep    the Society running smoothly.   Nearly     200     volunteers     do     so     much     to     help     make     the EMSWORTH    SHOW    the    success    it    has    become    and    their efforts   are   much   appreciated.   Your   help   in   this   and   other   jobs would be most welcome.   Any   Surplus   remaining   from   the   Show   income   after   payment   of expenses is distributed to local good causes.
