The 21st August 2016 saw the Bristol Bonsai show, a lovely event where we had a chance to chat to many friends. As well as view a large number of lovely trees and accents. Here are some of the displays………
Again the club put on a display at the Wanborough show on Saturday the 20th August 2016, despite the terrible weather warning of very strong winds and heavy rain. But then it wouldn’t be the Wanborough show unless it was that!!!! Luckily, we managed to get the marquee up and the display out while it was dry, although it was blowing a gale and the site is very exposed on the top of a hill.
At the August club meeting we were visited by Mark & Ritta Cooper with an ambien slide show and talk about their visits to Japan recently and some of the big shows they attended.
A Lovely day out…………
This Fund-raising Event is sponsored by Dan and Cecilia Barton to raise funds for the Charity: M.E. RESEARCH UK
There is a huge list of Tombola prizes with tickets on sale at the show, it will then be followed by an auction of some lovely trees etc. Some of the auction trees are pictured below
Today, Sat 4th June 2016 we had an all day workshop with John Armitage. I managed to take a few photographs before getting back to work on the trees. Thanks to all those who brought biscuits and cake to keep us going we needed plenty of brain food.
BIG thanks goes to John for another enjoyable day
