Bishops Stortford news by Paul Cooper

The Bishops Stortford division held its first meeting of the year and AGM on 17th February.  We had an excellent turn-out as the group continues to grow in membership.  Our chairman (Dennis Osborne) and treasurer (Pauline Gibbs) were re-elected and Jane Moseley was elected as the new secretary.  The apiary visits for the year are:

Addresses will be published nearer the time.

Our invited speaker was Robin Dartington of BuzzWorks. He gave a fascinating and inspiring talk on the development of the project and showed many pictures of its progress. It is providing a valuable education resource for north Hertfordshire and Robin welcomes any visitors from across the county.  Please call before going. BuzzWorks needs more space so a second project has been started called HoneyWorks at another allotment site in Hitchin.

Alan Lewis organised an Introduction to Beekeeping talk in Bishops Stortford on 19th February. We had quite a few interested members of the public and expect to see some of them at future apiary meetings.
