2017 BSV Exhibition at Box Hill Town Hall

Many thanks to all the Members and volunteers for their help in preparing and running another very successful Bonsai Exhibition on 14 and 15 October at the Box Hill Town Hall.  Over 90 trees were on display by Members and a well stocked sales area was the scene of much frenetic activity.

The People’s Choice Competition was enthusiastically adopted by the public and close attention was given to final choices.  After counting many votes, our Competition Manager Robert announced that tree number 25, an English Elm grown by Howard and Marian was voted as favourite tree.  Well done.
