TWO gardens, one fruit/vegetables/flowers and one full of quality Bonsai – ALL in Aid of Charity.
Following John’s ‘Gold’ medal successes at various shows, we were lucky to have him at the club for a day workshop on Sat 20th June 2015. Here are a few photos from the day. Many needed a good prune, shame I forgot to get some photos when they had been finished, but then we were all busy working!!! For John’s workshops see www.mendipbonsai.co.uk
Sunday 5th July 2015 held at Roots Garden Centre, Prior’s Court Road, Hermitage, Berkshire RG18 9TG
I have only just found out today that John Pitt Ceramics has been working on a NEW Range of shohin pots and they will be on show for the first time at the 2015 Swindon ‘Winter Image’ show on Sunday the 22nd Feb. It is explained in an earlier post that John is the main Award sponsor for the Winter Image show, so a great opportunity to see this new range.
GOOD NEWS – The bridge is open as works have been cancelled. So just ignore whats below………..see you all at the show
Railway bridge closure, November – April 2015
This information is for anyone attending the ‘Winter Image’ show on the 22nd Feb 2015.
I wasn’t going to post this just yet, but a number of people are already arranging their accommodation within the Swindon area and they may find this helpful.
It affects anyone attending the show venue, from the town side of Grange Drive. The railway bridge on the B4006 at Greenbridge, has been closed and will remain so until April 2015 while they renew and raise the bridge for the electrification of the main London railway system. There is a diversion signed, but it takes you back towards the town centre. See Map
The railway bridge on Ermin Street, which is off the A419 Swindon bypass, A420 Oxford Road junction is no problem and may be your best route to the show. It is controlled by traffic lights which keeps the traffic moving as it is busy at peak times. Luckily the show is on a Sunday as traffic is lighter.
The Heathrow Bonsai show is on Sunday the 26th October 2014……………….YES Next week, only 8 days to go..
at the NEW venue, William Byrd school, Victoria Lane, Harlington, Near Heathrow. UB3 5EW
