Generous  sponsorship of Bulbs  by Woodies  has  facilitated the distribution by the KKB of  a colorful range of flowering  bulbs to primary and secondary Schools and other groups  throughout our City and County.

These included St Patrick’s boys school, John of God, St Canice’s, St John’s senior, Kilkenny College, the Model school,  the City  Vocational School on New street and the SOS on the Callan Rd.

The KKB  also cooperates with Tidy town’s committees  through out County  Kilkenny. Flowering  bulbs were  distributed by the KKB in January   to Goresbridge, Thomastown, Coon, Urlingford and Inistoge Tidy Towns Committees to help give spring and summer colour.
