Plant Sale/Coffee Morning 2024

The Plant Sale and Coffee Morning held in Dunmore Hall on Saturday May 25th in aid of the charity ‘As I Am’ and Kilkenny Flower Club was a resounding success, even surpassing last year’s event.

We had a vast selection of plants and an equally impressive array of cakes and buns. Many attendees went home not only with beautiful plants but also with plates of delicious baked goods. Thank you to ‘Gardiner’s World SOS’ and ‘Easter Island Garden Centre’ for their contributions.

A big thank you to all who donated plants and cakes, and to those who purchased them. We also appreciate everyone who helped prepare the plants, the hall, served teas, washed up, and cleaned up at the end of the event.

Once again, The Community Centre at Dunmore proved to be the perfect venue. The motto of our club is ‘Friendship through Flowers’, and Saturday truly embodied this spirit. Thank you to all our friends for their contributions.
