It is with great sadness that I write a tribute to Sandra Knight who sadly passed away last week. Sandra was a very big part of the Warminster bonsai club, not only did she support her husband Clive with his bonsai trees, she was a keen bonsai enthusiast herself and had many lovely trees which she was very proud of.


She will be very greatly missed by all who knew her as she was a very friendly and sociable person who loved going to bonsai events and meeting the people that went to them.


She was treasurer at Warminster and Salisbury clubs and worked hard in keeping accurate accounts and keeping the clubs solvent. Our sympathies go to Clive whom she was married to for forty years.


She loved bonsai and club members were fortunate to see some of her trees on club nights when she entered tree of the month. She particularly used to enjoy entering the Christmas tree of the month and everyone will remember her well-decorated and colourful bonsai trees.


We will miss Sandra greatly but not forget her and her love of small bonsai. A small tribute was placed on the Warminster Bonsai display at the Swindon Show dedicated the display to her love of the art.
