Change to September Meeting

The usual meeting this Friday 13th September at Cregagh Cummunity Centre has been changed to a different venue and time.

The meeting will now be held at The set up for the Autumn Fair at Botanic Gardens, Belfast starting at 7pm.

Due to the clash of events and our desire to encourage members to exhibit at the Autumn Fair we will be combining the two on Friday evening. I would encourage members to exhibit a tree both for their own experience and for the pleasure of the public. We can learn a lot from exhibiting our bonsai. There will be a selection of stands and accents available on the night for those without to chose from. Experienced hands will be there to assist with set up.
