Welcome to our group's website, for all-things bonsai in the North Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent area.  

We cover (as our name suggests) the North Staff's and Stoke areas and we sit between four other bonsai societies in the region (see 'Links' page for more info on these).

We currently meet on the 2nd Wednesday of the month (not January) at 'The Sustainability Hub' at Keele University,  (See Meeting Programme for more info).  

Alongside this website, we also have a Facebook page and group as well as e-mail contact lists, through which we handle most of the 'day to day' contact and information for our members and followers.  See below for links....

Recruiting new members...
We always welcome new, or returning members with open arms.  More information can be found about our Programme by following the tab above...

Membership/Meeting costs
We have retained the membership costs at the level that they were during 2015 with these being outlined in the table below.

Guests, prospective members, and visitors from other FOBBS registered societies are welcome to our meetings, but will be asked to support the club by paying the same entry fees as our own members during club workshop sessions.  For those sessions where we have a guest artist or speaker presenting we normally ask that visitors make a contribution of £5 (in line with neighbouring bonsai societies approach), however, should prospective members subsequently join, then £3 will come off their annual membership fee to bring this in line with our own member rates. 

In the interests of politeness if organised visits to the club are being considered or planned, please do let us know beforehand so we can ensure you have a warm welcome.

 Membership Costs Member Guest
 Annual membership £20 N/A
 Couple's membership £30 N/A
 Normal workshop £2 £2
Uni staff/studentTBA

Membership costs for people joining mid-year are calculated on a 'pro-rata' basis.
