According to the City North representative, the AAA movement has politicised whole strata of society that has never become actively involved in politics before. He believes that those who have taken part in the water protests regard them as protests against austerity in general. “It is in this context that the Anti-Austerity Alliance has launched its appeal to the community groups and activists across the country to discuss the movement standing genuine activists as candidates in the upcoming general election,” he said.

Each year the Trial Gardens at the University of Georgia hosts a summer open house to show off the season’s best plants. This year they’re working to beat the heat by moving the party from July to June.The public is invited to this year’s showcase of new ornamentals — ranging from vibrantly colored flowers to hardy shrubs — at the open house on Saturday, June 8, from 9 a.m. to noon.“We have decided to hold the public open house for 2019 a month earlier to try and beat some of the brutal heat that July tends to bring us, as well as to catch people planning events early in the summer,” said Brandon Coker, Trial Gardens manager.The Trial Gardens at UGA are operated by the Department of Horticulture in the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. The Trial Gardens are open to the public every day of the year, but the open house gives friends and fans a special opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes tour of the gardens and to have their plant or garden questions answered by Coker and Professor John Ruter. Ruter is a plant breeder, author and director of the Trial Gardens.Many of the newest perennials, annuals and show-stopping roses will be in full bloom during the open house. Located on the main UGA campus between Snelling Dining Commons and the R.C. Wilson Pharmacy Building, the lush oasis displays hundreds of annuals and perennials from plant breeders around the world.“The Trial Gardens at UGA are one the best kept secrets in northeast Georgia,” said Ruter. “Our annual open house is our chance to share one of the most beautiful parts of the UGA campus with the community and share some of what we’ve learned over our last year of gardening.”Plant nurseries and breeding companies send hundreds of new plants each year to be evaluated at the Trial Gardens, which funds garden operations.The goal of the Trial Gardens is to see if the plants can survive in the Southeast’s hot and rainfall-variable climate. The funds go toward the gardens’ upkeep and paying the team of student workers that keeps the gardens running.The Trial Gardens also serve as a teaching and research facility for the UGA Department of Horticulture and other academic departments on campus.The open house will be held rain or shine. The gardens’ staff requests a $5 donation to help offset the cost of the event and support the gardens, located at 220 West Green St., Athens, Georgia.Parking will be available in the South Campus parking deck.

17 May 2019 Caroline wins second English senior title Cheshire’s Caroline Berry was queen of the greens today as she claimed her second win in the English Senior Women’s Amateur Championship at Enville Golf Club in Staffordshire.She holed a 25-footer for birdie on the 15th to close out the final, defeating Paula Carver of Sussex by 4/3.“To say I am thrilled is the understatement of the world,” said Berry, from Bromborough Golf Club.“It gets harder and harder and these youngsters are getting better and better. But sometimes you have the feeling that it’s your year and I felt good coming in to this, good about my game and good about my putting.”Berry’s game was in all-round great shape in the final, but her putting was outstanding and she holed a number of clutch putts to keep or extend her lead.In one rare aberration on the 11th, she misjudged a putt from off the green, sending it about 20ft past the pin, but she simply rolled in the return to win the hole with a par.“My putting has been the strongest part of my game,” said Berry. “Usually it’s my driving but I struggled little bit at the start of the week. But I felt I hit the ball better and better as the week went on.”She last won this championship at Littlestone in 2010, but counts this as the sweeter win. “That’s not to take anything away from the girls I played then, it was a really good win. But the standard this week! I had to beat three people who played for England last year to get to the final.”There was special praise for her husband and caddy, Geoff, who is the Bromborough club professional. “Geoff is a star,” she said “I do think two heads are better than one.”Berry clinched her place in the final this morning after winning a tight match against senior international Jackie Foster (Bishops Stortford) on the 18th. In earlier matches she defeated internationals Karen Jobling (Richmond) and Sue Spencer (Whittington Heath) after beating Jane Sly (Mill Ride) in the first round.Meanwhile Carver (Worthing) defeated Clarissa Bushell (West Sussex) 3/2 in an all-Sussex semi-final clash. Earlier, she beat Amanda Mayne (Saltford), Jan Harrison (Launceston) and Janette McWhirter (Appleby).This was only Carver’s second appearance in the championship and she commented after the final: “I just didn’t get enough pars, but that takes nothing away from Caroline, she played very solidly.”In the over 60s Ann Howard Trophy, Nottinghamshire’s Carol Wild (pictured below) successfully defended her title. She beat Sheree Dove-Wilde (Camberley Heath) by one hole.“I am ecstatic, I can’t believe it” said Wild, who is the captain of Notts Ladies Golf Club. “I thought it would be tough and I felt the pressure coming into this, even though I’m playing well and my handicap has come down.”Click here for full scores in the championship Wendy Taylor SalverClick here for full scores in the Ann Howard TrophyImages copyright Leaderboard Photography Tags: English Senior Women’s Amateur, Enville Golf Club
