Japan Day 2012

Hi Everyone

On Saturday the 13th of October W-B-S honoured its commitment and attended The  Japan Day at Birkenhead Library.The event itself is being used to raise money for the Library and St. John's Hospice in Clatterbridge. There were a few stalls including a Japanese Food stand and how to make Sushi in the Kitchen; Origami Workshop; Kimono dressing; Basic Japanese classes; a talk on Japanese Kanji Characters and a Kendo group from Liverpool.from W-B-S we had Andy,Bill,Tom and Sean. We had great display of Bonsai Trees and Accents plants and a Small workshop both which attracted  many admirers and question from everyone who stopped at the display and workshop
We all would like to thank Birkenhead Library.for thier fantastic welcome and looking after us and also to Natsuko and Paul C.for thinking about W-B-S and inviting us back to thier Japan Day once again

Take care  and look after 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.
