At the July meeting Tony Oswin styled the Juniper for the tree raffle.

This was the result.

The last picture is the Formosan Trident Maple which is the other tree for the raffle.


At the August meeting in 2017 this Scots Pine was styled. In the last 12 months it has grown well enough for some additional bending.

The auction on 14th September was a great success. Arranged at quite short notice we had over 45 people there. Tony Oswin was the auctioneer and did a great job.

Here are two pics, I did not have room for my camera (forgot it).


The next day Tony Moore and myself put a display at the Orchid show in Wincanton.

The Heathrow show was excellent as always.

Tony Moore Ian Duff and Geoff made the trip to the show to set up the display for us.

It was foggy when I left at 6am., but buy late morning it was sunny and quite warm.

30 societies had displays with several new ones this year.

At the social evening on 14th December the decorated tree competition was won by Julian.

The Tree of the Month Novice winner was Helen Lanchbury and Advanced winner was Geoff Hobson.
