Dear Fellow Beekeepers,
Here are details of our next two apiary meetings. Please note that the host and location on the June 15th meeting has been changed. Our treasurer, Keith Masters, will now host this meeting at his out-apiary. The meeting will be followed by a tea and discussion. If you are attending, please bring a contribution to tea: biscuits, cake, sandwiches or savoury. Keith is a treatment-free beekeeper, so this should be an instructive meeting following Steve Riley and Mike Cox’s talk to us in April. Keith writes: ‘The apiary is in a chicken run, with a mix of nationals and poly hives. Fair to say most hives are in a state of flux…’ – so it should be interesting!

Please wear stout shoes or wellies. The access to the apiary is fine, but the location itself may well be muddy by now.
The weather forecast for Saturday is promising… so do please come if you can, with new beekeepers particularly welcome! (And if you are coming, please remember to bring an edible contribution to tea.)
Saturday, July 20th, from 2.30pm. Host Peter Cobley; demonstrator John Hendrie. Contact phone 01732 867625.
