Opening Up 2018
Group Meeting this month:-
Opening up on Sunday 15th April 2018 from 12-2pm. As long as the weather is warm enough, we will be opening up the apiary hives at Esmerelda's. This is the perfect time to come along, have a look at the frames of bees with the experts. They can show you what you are looking for, answer your questions and give advice on how to proceed. Please check our Facebook page to check if there have been any last minute changes, however there will still be an opportunity to ask questions etc as there will be a Coffee and Chat session going on regardless of the weather.
Coffee and Chat is an open and informal session for anyone interested in beekeeping. Come along, have a hot drink and a slice of cake, and join us. Refreshments are provided free of charge, though most give a £1 donation towards the costs.
Honey Show 2017
The entries are submitted, and we all have our fingers crossed while the judging takes place. Good luck everybody, and well done for entering. Looking forward to seeing you tonight at the Prize giving.
Honey Tasting Evening
We had plenty of entries for our Honey Tasting Evening - and all agreed it was a very interesting and tasty evening!! There was such a huge range of different honey brought in from members' own hives.
We also had a chance to sample some international honey, from France, Greece, USA, Scotland and Russia - the Buckwheat Honey was very popular, along with Heather honey and Orange Blossom. However, there was a mixed response from the jar of honey and garlic!!
We were all grateful for the end of meeting cuppa, and a slice of cake!
