Bob Gault Memorial Day
Saturday 12th March 2011 at Houghton Hall Garden Centre Carlisle

Bob Gault was the founder and chairman of Klondyke. He died on Feb 15 after a long illness.

This will be an opportunity for Bob’s many friends and associates to meet and share their memories of him. This is an open invitation and will be from 1pm until 4pm with refreshments being provided.

In order to cater for this event it would be helpful if anyone who is going to attend can e-mail info@klondyke.co.uk and confirm how many people will be coming.

The family have asked for any donations to be made to help with the funding and training of a specialist M.S.A. Nurse for the South of Scotland (Multiple System Atrophy). Any donations should be made payable to William Strike Ltd and this will be collated and passed on by the company.

There is also a thread in the Gardenforum Coffeeshop where memories of Bob can be shared. http://www.gardenforum.co.uk/mips/gforumgossip/display.asp
