Welcome to the updated National Begonia Society website. In common with most societies we are introducing a members registration and password ‘login’ to protect the society and its membership.


We apologise for any problems you are having accessing the website. We are working on the issue.

ALL  shows and area meetings cancelled 2020.

If you are new to computers and have very little computer skills please contact Steve Jones as he will talk you through logging in as he has done with many people as this is a friendly society he will help all who request.
