British Shohin Bonsai new website

The British Shohin Association has recently undergone some changes and has been reincarnated as British Shohin Bonsai (BSB)
BSB is an informal appreciation society whose aims are to foster an interest in smaller sizes of bonsai, and to play a lead role in helping bonsai enthusiasts develop the necessary skills to grow and show this category of bonsai.
I've attached a link to the new website below, please pay it a visit I'm sure you'll be pleased you did. 

There is also a Facebook page with plenty of traffic at the moment, you can click through from the website.
