Many of the published photographs and original press cuttings from the 1980s-2000s were kindly donated to the SFHS by long term members Marina, and her late husband, Harold McCallum. Their memories of the SFHS from when they first joined in 1964 are invaluable in trying to piece together the history of the Society.

 

Julie MacCulloch has also kindly dug out lots of information including newspaper articles and photographs relating to the Society, She has shared her, and her late husband Mac's, memories from over 40 plus years of membership and commitment to SFHS.

 

Anne Fryer has kindly provided copies of articles from some local papers of the late 19th and early 20th Century, that she had found whilst researching the history of Shoreham-by-Sea Horticultural Society.

Many of the books, magazines, postcards, cigarette cards or other ephemera photographed and posted on the website are from my own, or from my family's, collections.

 

Due to the current COVID-19 Lockdown, I have only been able to check a limited number of on-line resources and consulted a few local history books borrowed from Southwick Library. I have gleaned a little more information from the small printed local studies collection kept at Southwick Library. Unfortunately Worthing Library which holds more reference materials and microfilm copies of local papers is currently closed for refurbishment. 

 

I have also been in contact with The Southwick (Sussex) Society and asked for help via the Southwick Together Facebook Group, but so far nothing has materialised. I have also joined the Shoreham-by-Sea on-line history group and asked if any of its members have any information they could share with me. Unfortunately, to date, no one has been in touch with me.

 

The Shoreham Herald ran a story in August 2020 about the history of the society and asked for anyone with more information to contact me. As a result of this Roy Powell got in touch and provided some photographs of newspaper clippings, medals and trophies his late father, E.A.Powell (known as Dick), won in the 1950s and 1960s. These will be published on the website in due course, so thanks must be given to Roy for his help. I'm hoping that the Shoreham Herald will run a follow-up story featuring this soon.

 

The Editor of the Shoreham Herald has also kindly agreed to us to using photographs of newspaper articles already in the SFHS archive, with the proviso that we continue to support local journalism and local papers. This we have wholeheartedly agreed to do and urge readers of this website to do the same.

I have recently taken out an annual subscription to the British Newspaper Archive and have been able to bookmark upwards of 200 articles and a very few photographs relating to SFHS. Most articles have appeared in the Worthing Herald and West Sussex Gazette, with a smaller number appearing in the Brighton Gazette, West Sussex County Times and the Sussex Agricultural Express.  These date from the 1890s to the mid-1950s.The British Library Board and JPIMedia have kindly given permission for their copyrighted material to be published on the website. I am also starting to build up a picture of the local dignatories who feature in many of the articles and will provide information on the website once I have had time to sift through them. It is likely I will create a separate page for these individuals.   

It should be noted that copyright remains with the publishers of newspaper articles and photographs. Details and credits are provided next to extracts or photographs where known or at the bottom of pages where many articles are listed. Other items have been published from material already in the public domain and are used for educational purposes only. In these cases it should be noted that copyright remains with the original owners and not SFHS.  SFHS retains the copyright on all other published material on this website. SFHS will gladly give credit to individual photographs, or other items, once it is has been brought to its attention. 

 

If anyone reading this has any information, or other material in their possession, relating to SFHS they would be happy to share with me, I would love them to get in touch!
