Task ahead as information sought on Auxiliary hospital

Do you remember Kilkenny in the good old days of black and white.? If so, you may be able to help the good people at T.A.S.K. , The Training and Support group in Kilkenny.

Based at the Old Auxiliary hospital on Wolfe Tone Street in Kilkenny, the T.A.S.K. workforce provide training and workshops in gardening, horticulture , furniture upcycling, camera club, sports and recreation as well as health and wellbeing.

Another string to their bow is the provision of spaces to a number of artists, many of whom were part of the Fringe Arts Festival held in August.

A spokesperson for T.A.S.K. told ‘The Kilkenny Observer’ that they are currently working on a creative project that reflects the journey of The Auxiliary . As part of the project, they are seeking help from the general public.

They are inviting residents of the area as well as the wider community to share any memories they might have of the onetime hospital.

These memories can be stories or photos that have been gathered throughout the years.

They would be particularly appealing to people or relatives of people who may have worked at the Auxiliary.

When the information is gathered, it is hoped that an open day, to include an exhibition will be held at the Auxiliary which will give people an opportunity to see the creative response.
