'BeeWorld 2010'

A very successful Hertfordshire BKA BeeWorld was held at the Herts Show on the weekend of May 29th/30th . It was St Albans turn to host the event and Marian Whittaker did a wonderful job of liaising and pulling everything and everyone together. Thank you Marian.

Assisting us were Welwyn, North Herts and Barnet Divisions and an unending stream of interested people visited the stand in the Horticultural Tent both days keeping all the volunteers very busy. Thank you to all the St Albans members who supported the event and made it the success it undoubtedly was.

St Albans BKA 'Meet the Public' events in 2010

Redbourn Rural Day on Sunday May 23rd on Redbourn Common was a scorching hot day. Fortunately we had our gazebo placed close to the Lime Avenue across the Common nice and cool during the morning but by early afternoon we were in full sun. There were lots of very interested visitors and feed back from the organizers indicate that we were '…a much talked about stand and everybody was delighted to have us there.'

My sincere thanks to my volunteers Sally, Svenja, Marian, Eric, Robin, Mike and Erika and especially to Garri who talked bees and demonstrated the workings of a hive throughout the long hot day. He was a STAR. Oaklands Open Day - Sunday June 13th 10.00 - 4.00 (Smallford Campus, St Albans)
