The AGM was well supported, thereby enabling the society to start the Bee keeping and Apiary year with a progressive calendar.
From April Apiary meetings will be held at 3.00pm on the first and third Saturday of each month until autumn. Judging by the previous two years, late crops of honey could still be obtained. This year will start with a clear out of one of the sheds, that will be duly replaced
by a new one. All hands to carry out this operation will be greatly appreciated.
Those wishing to keep a hive in the Apiary, please contact the Apiary Manager (Bob) as there is limited space so first come, first served.
With the first signs of warmer, drier weather, the bees could be making an early strong start but check that your colonies have sufficient stores to carry them through the next few unpredictable months.
