‘A big thanks all round to everyone’ is what Club President Howard said as our show ended on Monday afternoon. To Brian and Sara for all the work that they put in organising the tent, the rotas and being there all the time to see that all went well. To Roger for being transport manager with his van, to Adrian our Tree of the Month Competition judge for his eagle eye in arranging the display and to all the members who turned out to put it all up, take it all down and steward throughout the three days.
As Adrian said it is really surprising what a display of good trees our members can put on when we have a show to concentrate the bonsai mind a bit. Some visitors came quite a distance to see our display and to find that there’s a lot more to Bonsai in Somerset than people might think.
A very big thanks also to our hosts at Willowbrook Garden Centre and their staff and whoever is responsible for the fine weather which helped to make our show such a busy one this year..
‘Well that’s it for this year, anyone got trees ready for 2017?’
