Kenmare & District Garden Club

Thursday 3rd April was the Club’s AGM and it was well attended. We got straight into the business and the Secretary’s Report ran through all the monthly events and garden trips between May 2013 and March 2014 and very impressive it all sounded. This year’s programme looks even better! This was followed by the Treasurer’s Report which seemed very healthy. Then came time for elections of a new committee but we must have done something very right last year as it was a unanimous decision that all persons stand again for another year and these are: Chairperson: Stephen Austen, Secretary: Geraldine Johnston, Treasurer: Anne Cronin, PRO: Rosemary Dixon all helped very capably by Therese Hayes, Ros Green and Eva Kelleher.
There then followed a lively session of Questions with answers given by five very able gardeners belonging to the Club. After this it was time to exchange plants from each others’ gardens and these looked very healthy and some rather exotic.
Next month please note the change of date from the 1st May to Thursday the 8th May, 7.30 p.m. at Gateway when the well-known landscape gardener, designer & plantswoman, Verney Naylor from Durrus will be giving us an illustrated talk on ‘From Wasteland to Jungle’, detailing her work on 4 gardens. €6.
