For The Garden Group-ee’s

First up. If your name is not on the list – I am limited in numbers that I can bring by the very kind people of the OPW. As polite as I can say it…. You cannot go. It’s out of my hands, not my fault, nothing I can do…. sorry 🙁

For those who are going.

  • Time: 11.30 am
  • Meeting Point: In the car park just at the start of the park
  • Contact me: if you are really stuck I’m on [Vodafone Prefix]6594688 or
  • Other: if you reckon you even may have had a relation who fought in World War 1 – get some or any information. The names can still be printed off from the original records. You may also wish to bring a case/ folder of some format to keep your copy dry and in tact. Photography is encouraged!
