CHARITY ROAD RUN FOR WATERGARDEN

September 22nd, 2017

Filed Under: News with 0 Comments

CLUB MEMBER MICHAEL PIERT IS ORGANIZING  A DRIVE NEXT SUNDAY IN AID OF THE WATERGARDEN IN THOMASTOWN    LUNCH IN THE WATER GARDEN  AND THEN A  ROAD TRIP WITH A STOP IN MOUNT JULIET FOR LIGHT REFRESHMENTS…..LEAVING TUBS AND TILES AT 11.30     €15 PER CAR

The Watergarden is a non-residential centre for adults with special needs. It includes a coffeeshop, garden centre, gardens and art gallery which are also open to the public These different areas provide a diversity of challenges and opportunities.

The beautiful garden offers a therapeutic backdrop to the workplace of The Watergarden and gives everyone an experience of the changing seasons.The principal impulses of The Watergarden are to provide meaningful work for adults with special needs and to bring the Camphill ethos into the wider community

We also provide differing levels of home-based support to some of those working in The Watergarden and living independently in the town. This allows some people to move out of their parental home to live independently or semi-independently for the first time. A recently awarded grant means that we can develop a site to provide private apartments for this purpose.

IVVCC AUTUMN RUN

September 4th, 2017

Filed Under: News with 0 Comments

Dear Affiliate Club Members

The IVVCC is holding its Autumn Event this year specifically for cars from 1946 to 1987 and we are starting the event in Killashee Hotel rere car part at 10.30 am and returning there for lunch in the early afternoon.  We are using the main part of the original 1903 Gordon Bennett route which should appeal to many classic car owners.  We have arranged a break at Treacy’s  Tatch Bar and Restaurant at the Heath in Portaloise and there will also be time to socialise in Stradbally before returning to Killashee.

I attach an entry form and details of the event which we hope will be of interest to your members and if any are interested in taking part and would prefer to meet up enroute please ask them to contact me and we will do our best to facilitate them.  Also if they are only available to do the run but not able to attend the lunch, we will make an appropriate adjustment in the entry costs to facilitate this.  However,  in order to help with the organisation of the day we would ask people to submit their entries before Friday,  15th September either by post or online at www.IVVCC.ie website under the Classic Car Event information.

Regards

Bernadette Wyer

This year’s AUTUMN RUN is specifically designed for CLASSIC CARS, manufactured between 1946 and 1987. We have a very historic route planned which follows the path of the original Gordon Bennett Race in 1903.

We will meet up in the Killashee Hotel rear car park, Naas, Co Kildare at 10.30am (the hotel is located on the Naas to Kilcullen road about 3 kms from Naas). Our departure time from the car park will be 11.00am sharp and the Road Book and Rally Plate will be distributed on the morning of the Run.

Our itinerary will allow for a leisurely drive with ample time for a tea/coffee stop along the route. We will arrive back at Killashee Hotel, Rathasker Suite, for lunch at 2.30pm.

The cost of the event, which includes a 2-course lunch with tea and coffee, Road Book and Rally Plate is €30 per person.

We look forward to seeing you on this very special event.

You will have the opportunity to vote for the car of your choice in several categories.
