We are a very friendly bunch of people with one major interest in common, an enthusiastic love of Bonsai. Whether you are a beginner setting out along the pathway that is Bonsai or already have some years of cultivating your trees behind you do get in touch, or just simply come along to a meeting and see what goes on.
Further details of membership are in the Join Us section.
