Bloom in the Park 2011


Bloom was a great success,

With hundreds of flyers handed out, most Chapters in the Guild should be getting some new members.

hundreds of spinning tops, dibbers, goblets, paper potters pens, and wet bowls turned to crowds 5 deep on the nice days !!

Thanks to all that helped out on the 5 days,

Joe Laird, Even Petty, Jack Kearney, Eugene Grimley, Eugene Sweeney, Aiden Keogh, Bernard Cassidy, Dave Kelly, Cecil Barron, Charlie Ryan, Tony Lally and also to Ken Fildes for his trailer and  Mick Tighe and Shane Laird for the help with all the heavy work !


Yes the date is wrong on my camera !!
