KILMACOLM HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY. APRIL 2020
LETTER SENT TO ALL MEMBERS IN APRIL 2020
Covid-19 Coronavirus : The pleas to Stay Home, Keep Safe, Protect the lives of others, Help the NHS apply to us all.
The K.H.S. regret that our annual Coffee Morning and Plant Sale planned for the 16th May is cancelled. In a few weeks’ time, Parklea Garden Centre telephone 01475 744516 will have a stock of summer bedding plants, hanging baskets, geraniums, vegetable trays etc, ready for sale. Further details are enclosed.
Our Summer outing to Geilston Gardens, Ardardan Nurseries and Farm Shop, Hill House at Helensburgh, planned for Wednesday 13th May is cancelled. For those members who have paid for the Outing – your cheque is void, and returned with this letter. We look forward to many more Outings when the country once again allows us to enjoy, admire, visit the scenic attractions in Scotland, together as a group.
The highlight of the K.H.S. calendar is the traditional Kilmacolm Flower Show. It is too soon to decide the structure of this year’s event, we shall abide by the government rules – but the end of Covid-19 will one day bring freedom to meet and greet together in safety again (sooner rather later, please God). We hope to be able to offer either a shortened version of a Flower Show, or a Celebration day : featuring flowers, veg, refreshments, tombola, music, autumn plants and bulb sale, and togetherness! We will keep in touch.
Annual Flower Show. Saturday 5th September 2020
FURTHER DETAILS WILL BE POSTED AS SOON AS CHANGES TO THE GOVERNMENT RESTRICTIONS/RULES ARE RELAXED/CHANGED.
