Club Night

One of the most pleasing things I have seen in bonsai in the last few years has been the growth and transformation of the club I belong too. The Northern Ireland Bonsai Society has been around since 1986, but the last few years has seen a swing to workshop based meetings and a drive to bring in knowledge from bonsai professionals to boost the knowledge of all members.

This year is shaping up to be a great year. We have Peter Warren coming over in September, Robert Porch next month and we are delighted to be entering into our third year of our Willowbog Bonsai School. We also are breaking new ground with our exhibition moving to a new location and date this April.

    In my view from afar, you clearly are to blame for this!!

    • I don’t mind taking the blame for things Jim, but I must point out that there’s more than me who have strived to achieve a more balanced club. I have made some great friends along the way and their input, support and drive has been a big part of why we are where we are. At times when you want to say, ‘Ah F*** it!’, and walk away, they show support and keep things on the level.

      That said, I appreciate your kind words, are we related? 🙂
