The theme for Tony's talk will be a ‘Tree Clinic’ the idea being that members bring trees and he will advise on future work, styling and a plan for maintenance.

New members are always welcome, just come along to one of our monthly meetings at the RAFA club. You can even 'try us out' for a few months before you decide on joining as an official member. The meetings are informal (there's a bar!) and the club members are (mostly) friendly, approachable and happy to pass on guidance and information to anybody interested in bonsai- whatever your level of experience.
