ECHS do a lot for the community that you dont hear about. The chairman was recently asked to talk about the influence of Sam McGredy and his production of roses.
Sam was a world wide expert on the production of roses who came from Portadown. He recently passed away in New Zealand . The talk was done in the millennium centre in Portadown and was well received by all who attended it.
Sam employed a lot of people from Portadown especially during the summer holidays. Information can be found on YouTube and the internet.
