Peter Moth

Peter Moth It is with very much regret and sadness that I have to inform you that Peter Moth (69) Chairman National Bonsai Society sadly passed away from a heart attack (Sat 24th Jan). Not only has the National Bonsai Society lost their Chairman but we have lost our close friend and fellow bonsai enthusiast.

Peter always had a keen interest in bonsai since childhood and was a member of the National Bonsai Society and Fylde Bonsai Association for many years. He became Chairman in 2003 and continued to put a lot of time and effort into both Societies; his enthusiasm for bonsai overall was an example to us all.

He enjoyed all aspects of bonsai including making his own pots, selling at the clubs and bonsai fairs and organizing and attending workshops. In 2004 he organized the first Bonsai Convention at Lowther Gardens and he has over the years amassed awards from various clubs and competitions including Southport Flower Show.

In 2005 he went to Japan, his first time on a plane, a trip he loved so much. He will be sadly missed.
