Another fantastic year for bonsai with a Gold medal for 2016 for the Federation of British Bonsai. With 22 bonsai trees from Swindon Bonsai Club and 5 accents out of the 25 bonsai trees on display.
Reginald Bolton and Terry Adams initially started helping on the FoBBs stand since 1996 and in 1998 they took over designing, building and managing the display and stand and have continued to do so for the past 18 years.
The trees are a range of species including Mountain maple, English Yew, White Pine, Trident Maple, Deshojo Maple, Chinese Juniper, Kiyohime Maple, Chinese Elm, Siberian Elm, English Elm, Korean Hornbeam, Ligustrum and a White Beech.
The build team for this year were Graham Simpson, Andy Jordan, Graham Stubbs, Terry Adams, Reginald Bolton and Tony Mckenzie and it was a great team effort. With a special vote of thanks to Graham Simpson who worked like a trojan to ensure the build was completed on time.
