Meetings - Second Sunday of every month 1.30pm in Alloway Village Hall. Face to face meetings now resumed.

This months Programme - December 2022 for Ayrshire - Bonsai

Hi all Ayrshire Group members. As I write this I can see the first of the heavier frosts on the cars and garden furniture. Things they are a changing so hope you are all ahead of the posse as regards winter protection where it is needed? Our next scheduled meeting is this Sunday 11th December 2022 - Alloway Village Hall - 1.30pm as usual. This is our Christmas meet so come along full of the festive spirit. Trees still required for display tables and to work on where required. We will have a Secret Santa present distribution so bring a wee wrapped gift along and go home with something else. We will also have our annual quiz but this year it will be completely general knowledge and not bonsai related as in previous years. So this time your individual and extensive bonsai knowledge will not be frustratingly challenged! Perhaps even more relaxed and eager participants this year. Lets see how it goes. There will the usual tea and coffee availability along with some seasonal goodies ie mince pies, cake etc. Perhaps also worth a quick reminder about January's Winter Image Show - if you need to do any prep or work on items you intend bringing along then please do so. It may be a festive holiday time but the wee green or bare blighters still demand some attention and preperation. Please also remember that Jeff is now holding the items obtained in the recent Bulk Buy - so if you have an order please collect and pay for the items at the meeting. For those unable to attend this particular meeting, may I on behalf of the Group Committee wish you and your family members a very Merry Christmas and an equally Happy New Year.

Next meeting: Tuesday 13th December, Penicuik town hall, 7pm.

We’ll have the usual evening of nibbles, soft drinks and natter, with a little bit of bonsai. If he is not called out, Keith will bring along the club juniper, donated by Alison, which he generously maintains and improves. The purpose is to have a discussion of possibilities of a well developed tree, by all of us, and for Keith to implement anything he thinks constructive, time permitting. If you wish to decorate a Christmas tree, please bring one – they are delightful and always much appreciated. Also, if you wish, bring your best leafless tree to show the path to developing of ramification.
