Dear Members and Prospective Bee-keepers
It had been a long dark – enclosed – winter. Normal for bees, I suppose but not for us.
However, there is light. As things are currently projected, we hope to be able to open up the apiaries this spring. It looks as if numbers at each session will need to be limited to six per session, at first. This means we will have to operate a booking system.
Sessions will consist of practical demonstration and instruction in inspecting colonies, combined with some of the introduction to bees and bee-keeping that would normally have been covered in our March lectures in Greenodd Village Hall. Those, clearly, have not been possible this year.
If you would like to book a session – 10.30 to 11.30 on a Saturday morning, at either Haverthwaite or Outcast – please contact our Secretary, David Oprey by emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org or via mobile or text on 07834545408 no later than the Tuesday so that he can allocate spaces for the following Saturday.
Information he requires is:
Apiary you wish to attend:
Current Beekeeper or Prospective Beekeeper:
He will then allocate spaces and inform people no later than 6pm on the Thursday of each week, once sessions have begun. He will let you know the dates available, once they’re confirmed.
