u3a - u3a

Carlton and Gedling U3A’s Bonsai group has met in person for the first time since lockdown began.

Following social distancing guidelines, the bonsai group met in a members’ garden – even finding takers for some of their Bonsai cuttings.

Paul Martinez, group convenor said, "We had been keeping in touch through WhatsApp, emails and Zoom meeting, but it is a bit difficult showing the finer points of wiring, pinching out and root pruning through Zoom. We had our first socially distanced meeting in July and it went really well".
