‘Bonsai News U.K.’

For a number of years, the late Paul Goff distributed to British bonsai enthusiasts a monthly publication entitled ‘Bonsai Review’. In it were listed the forthcoming meetings and events being put on by the bonsai societies who passed this information on to Paul.

Since his untimely death late last year, there have been no more ‘Bonsai Reviews’. Following a number of enquires and requests, FoBBS has now decided to take on a similar publication entitled ‘Bonsai News U.K.’ It is hoped this will continue the legacy that Paul established with the ‘Review’. It and will go out with the monthly ‘Calendar of Events’ set up by the World Bonsai Friendship Federation. Whilst the Calendar is circulated electronically worldwide, the new ‘Bonsai News U.K.’ will only be distributed within the U.K.

Those bonsai societies wishing to send details of forthcoming monthly meetings or other events e.g. shows, please send all relevant details (to include society name, dates and venue together with a contact) to mkhughes567@btinternet.com   Please note this is a free service to FOBBS member clubs but to non member clubs there is a small charge. Pauls Bonsai Review was a personally funded enterprise by Bonsai Presentations, the name under which he traded.

This email publication is a service to FOBBS and its members.  Click here to see the first edition.

Gold Medal Award for Cheshire Bonsai Society

Once again, congratulations go to the Cheshire Bonsai Society for their display of bonsai at the Royal Horticultural Show at Tatton Park.

The stand displayed a range of species and styles, with an impressive oak as the centrepiece. Also featured were two shohin displays within tokonoma-style areas.

Clearly the judging panel were impressed, giving the society maximum points for a Gold Medal Award. Congratulations to all the members involved.

In addition to the Cheshire Society, there were other impressive bonsai displays by professionals and non-FoBBS member societies.

Good news for FOBBS; for the first time this year, three Fobbs member Clubs staged individual stands at this prestigious Royal Horticultural Society Show.

The stands were all of high standard and we are proud to receive:-
