Are you available to help on our stand?
Sunday 15th of November from 8.30am – 2.00pm.
We are looking for people who could come along from the club to talk about bees and beekeeping. The Club is taking part in a fun day at Riccarton Market.
Not having the A&P Show this is a great opportunity to showcase our skills and help others learn about bees and beekeeping. If you have just started beekeeping or you’re an old hand it doesn’t matter.
We’d love to hear from you. Please catch up with Jeff Gibson or Irene on Saturday if you can help even for an hour or so would be great.
