Hi all Solent Bonsai Society members and friends.
This month’s meeting, on February 22nd, is the Solent Bonsai Winter Image show
, this gives
members a chance to show other members some of the trees or suiseki that they have, discuss
and get advice on their trees etc, so please bring them along, it's always a great evening that
everyone enjoys. Don’t forget bring along family and friends, all are welcome.
24th February is the first show of the year, The Swindon Winter Image show
, Solent are
showing this year, it is always a good show to start the Bonsai year with many traders selling trees,
The meeting on the 29th March is a repotting evening, so bring those trees along that you would
like to repot at the club evening, or get some advice on.
I start this report with the sad news that our great friend Jim Read passed away peacefully on 4th February, aged 100. He was a member of Solent Bonsai Society for many years, we had the great pleasure of making him a honorary member of the club at our summer show prior to his 100 birthday on 16th November, I and several other members had the pleasure of attending his birthday.
Our deepest condolences go out to Jean, we look forward to seeing her at future meetings.
Jim’s funeral service will take place at the Portchester Crematorium on Monday 4th March at 12.45pm.
