Hi Everyone

On Sunday the 30th October 2011 The Penultimate Workshop before the end of the year there were a dozen members in attendance in no particular order Tom , Brian ,Dave Y, Sean D ,Bill G Andy H, Arthur, Steve H, Eddie and Ian W and it was an afternoon well spent at the Wonderful Awarding Winning Gordale'x Garden Center here in Wirral Peninsula

As usual members brought in a variety of Bonsai trees to work on such as a Spruce + Juniper's + Zelkova + Field Maple plus other Maples + Privets

During the day Dave Y, Andy H, Steve H , Eddie, Tom, Ian W and Sean D all interacted with the general public answer and helping them all out with their questions and their own Bonsai Trees that they had brought into the workshop. Sean D made a young ladies day as she was very very interested on how and why Sean was using Bonsai Wire on his Bonsai Tree and Sean spent some time explaining and showing the Lady and her partner how he wired his tree and explained the purpose for it. Andy H was also on hand to assist Two Young Boys and their Father in deciding what would be the best starter Bonsai Tree to purchase and having a reasonable success in keeping that species of tree alive and not having the failure that the Young Lads have had so far, so here's hoping they took Andy's advice and that they become regulars at the workshop from time to time.

We all from W-B-S would like to thank once again Mr and Mrs Nicholson and all their excellent and helpful staff for allowing our society to use the Gordale's Garden Center for our Workshop

It was an excellent day and we all enjoyed working on our bonsai trees and especially helping and working on members of public and we all would like thank them very much for taking time to bring their trees into the workshop and ask for the Bonsai Societies help and advice

Until the next time in November we all look forward to seeing you all again

Take care look after each other and all your Bonsai Trees

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.
