We now have a huge gap in our history which needs to be filled with factual information about the Society - Can you help?
Following the interest shown in the small exhibition created for the 60th anniversary party in August 2012, we are setting up an official CHS archive. We are asking for any ephemera such as papers or photographs relating to the Crawley Horticultural society.
Naturally the older the better. Especially photographs - does anybody have pictures of the time when we were building the hall and the shop?? Nothing is too small or uninteresting. Cuttings from newspapers, reports, letters, membership cards. price lists, year books, show schedules, we would be interested!
Committee member Barry Morton has volunteered to become our Archivist. 
Address is 25 Findon Road, Ifield, Crawley, RH11 0AP, telephone number 01293 541628
