SFTGS will be privileged to listen to this first presentation by the company to the public.
Synopsis of Talk 2: Makita will share with Members a range of gardening tools they have available which will make the chores in your garden much easier and less taxing.
As there is very limited parking along Jalan SS 22/26, please park along Jalan SS 22/11 where there are many parking lots. No parking fees on Saturday! It is just a short walk to the venue from there. Please do not park outside people’s houses and inconveniencing them.
There will be a charge of RM10.00 for members and RM15.00 for non-members to pay for rental of the venue.
NOTE FROM THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE For the past year we have been moving from place to place for our talks because we have not been able to find a suitable, reasonably priced, convenient and permanent venue. Prices for rental have been going up, up, up! For this constant movement, we apologise to Members if it has caused you any inconvenience. We hope that this current venue will be the ideal choice. The only drawback is we are not permitted to serve food, but mineral water will be available. In spite of this, the charges will remain unchanged to cover rental and a little something for the speakers. We hope you understand.
