This year we also had a Public vote for the visitors to our Swindon Winter Image Bonsai show 2016 to vote for their favourite tree. There there were no prizes, but just a bit of fun and to involve everyone in the show. It was a close vote and two trees shared the honour of the accolade with the same number of votes cast.

They were Alan Lewis with a large windswept [Aberkinfig Club] and Tony Tickle for his Blackthorn in flower.
