The wonderfully warm and sunny day brought the crowds out to visit the Emsworth Show on the August Bank Holiday Monday. The Museum marquee proved very popular with many visitors coming in to look at our boards which displayed information on the Museum as well as extracts from a few previous exhibitions held this year. The boards on the Storms in Emsworth, Property and Family History as well as the History of Football in Emsworth attracted a lot of interest.

We shared an area of our marquee with Chichester District Archaeological Society this year and Ann Davies was on hand all day to talk to visitors about their past and current digs at Warblington Roman Villa Estate as well as Priory Park.Emsworth Show 2 

Congratulations to Alan Dawkins who was the winner of our annual quiz which consisted of old scenes of Emsworth. Alan was the only person to identify the six locations correctly and will receive the prize of a £10 Driftwoods voucher.
