Why not come along and join our friendly club. You will be sure of a warm welcome and a cup of tea. So that you may try the club without a yearly commitment you can join in as a visitor FREE on the first occasion and paying just £4.00 per evening which includes tea or coffee and a biscuit on any later visits.

Currently the annual membership fee is £20.00 and attendance is £3.00 per evening.

Junior members (under 18 years old on the second Wednesday in January) will not be required to pay the annual subscription for that year and Junior members would be asked to pay a reduced attendance fee of £2 per meeting.

Raffle tickets are sold each month for a yearly draw for a tree.

So what are you waiting for?   Either send an email via the 'Contact Us' section below, or just simply come along. We enjoy meeting fellow enthusiasts, beginners, anyone who thinks they may like bonsai; or just join for the fun of it – and get involved!

We look forward to seeing you soon.
