Surrey Heath Bonsai Society was established in 1989 and now today has a membership of 67 members with monthly meetings attracting 40-50 people.

The show was held at the Lord Pirbright Hall in Pirbright, Surrey, and had 20 members showing 87 trees.  The sunny weather helped and for the club a record breaking number of visitors attended the show a total of 155, with the possibility of 4 new club members.

The visitors voted for their favourite 3 trees with this years winners being:

1st Place Adrian Swallow - Azalea / Informal Upright (Tree No:82)
2nd Place Gordon Grover - Cedar / Cascade (Tree No:78) (posthumously)
3rd Place Roger Raymond - Acer / Informal Upright (Tree No:44)

During the day a continuous workshop demo was presented by club members. The show next year will be held on 13 May 2018.

Thanks to everyone for their support. .

Bonsai Boot Sale 12 March 2017
Preceding the AGM

This saw 30 boots set up at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens car park for another Annual Boot Sale, raising funds for the National Bonsai Collection.  The weather was kind and, as is so often the case, trade was brisk.  The event made a record £600.00 towards the running and maintenance of the Collection.  Thanks to all those who participated and especially to Kim Turton for organising the event.
