Get-together 2018 - Details of the day

09 January 2018 13:05:28

 I need numbers please (including companions and “maybes”)

Venue: Johnstown Garden Centre, Naas Road

Date: 13 January 2018 approx 11 am to 3.30 pm

This event is for all Garden.ie Members and their guests to meet and do what gardeners love to do – chat about plants, exchange ideas and advice and of course swap their surplus plants!

Johnstown have promised to give us the discount which applied during their annual sale – so no doubt there will be some retail therapy going on too!

Timetable for the day:

11 – 12 noon : Arriving at Johnstown – parking in the left side of the car-park this is your opportunity to swap plants with other members and friends.

12 – 1 pm : Moving inside to the Restaurant area  (we will have a section cordoned off) where the Kris Kringle gifts can be handed in – wrapped gifts usually vaguely garden related value not more than €10 please!

1 pm – Lunch. Usually Johnstown catering staff give us table service so there is no need to go to the counter. So settle down and enjoy the day!

2 pm (ish) – Kris Kringle and small raffle ( a subscription to the Irish Garden and some Johnstown vouchers)

3 pm – farewells – and time for retail therapy! The early finish is to allow those travelling to leave for home at a reasonable time!

Most of us met online initially but over the years we have become friends – and we are all aware of the recent difficulties with the website that was what brought us together in the first place, but lets make this the best get-together ever!

Hazel, Paddy and myself are definite. I was wondering where to put our names as I can see how you could be driven mad with names appearing everwhere.

Ivor Ivor 09 January 2018 18:34:57

Hazel,  I'll put my name down for a 90% possible,  MaryLou might well come as well.  Naas is only up the road from us, half an hour.  Unfortunatly it is all work dependant & related.  Fingers crossed.  It's in my phone calender already. Cheers all...Ivor

Mary - Its fine with me anywhere! I have a page on the spreadsheet where I keep my plants database and I just put the names there - whereever they are put!!!! 

Ivor - that's great! 

Not to worry Terri! I only sorted mine today!

Hi Hazel I had high hopes of making the get together this year but unfortunately something has come up with one of the kids. Hopefully I will get to one later in the year. Hope you all have a great gardening day

Good morning Hazel, and I am so pleased to say that we have another glorious sunny one.

Just in case Moya overlooks contacting you, there will be 4 of us in her car:

Moya, Brid, Daphne (Kittybane - a non-active member) and myself.   

All set!  

JoanG JoanG 10 January 2018 18:14:42

I'll be there too Hazel, can't wait!

Periwinkle Periwinkle 10 January 2018 20:30:51

Hazel, I confirm that Myrtle, Ronald and myself plan to be there! All the best with the organising!

Thanks. Great to see the list of people growing!

Joann Joann 10 January 2018 23:30:59

Hi Hazel and gang, I am still hoping to travel but my car is in the garage very sickly since last monday, I'm hoping all its problems will be sorted by tomorrow night and I will give you a definite answer by then. Fingers crossed. Its gonna cost over 1000 euro to fix, praying for a lotto win too....
