Northamptonshire Bonsai Society
Affiliated to FoBBS
Open to all
miniature tree lovers
We meet on the first Thursday of each month. (See Calendar)
Tea, coffee and biscuits are available to ensure that you do not get parched during the three hour sessions.
We have guest speakers, display show trees at a local venues, exhibit at annual trade fairs and hold regular workshop days on Saturdays.
Recently some local East Midlands clubs have folded through lack of numbers. Something we do not have. We have taken in several new membesr from such groups. Although the journeys from Bedford, Peterborough may not be wonderful at night, remember that travel sharing is sometimes possible with fellow members.
Hello! Things are looking up for you. We would like to welcome you to the Northamptonshire Bonsai Society otherwise known as NBS. We would like to ask that you contact our Secretary before coming along to experience a monthly meeting. We are a friendly bunch who love our trees. We show them each month on our display table. All varieties of trees are brought out over the year. It's wonderful to discuss what might improve them.
