The last field day of the season we’ll be having a BBQ, please bring salad or appropriate. The day will end with a short planting session, a mini working bee.
Help create our new hedge, we are asking you to bring your gardening gear to help with putting in a plant or two at the end of the session.
Saturday is all about good Queens, the best way to winter down and food for your bees oh yes another reminder to check for disease and investigate the new HiveHub.
Show Day Wed 10th – Fri 12th is coming up where we present to the public and we’ll need folk on the stand to help during the day. Can you offer a whole or half day? We start our preparations on Tuesday afternoon stacking the truck to take down our stall to the Show Grounds and have it up and ready to go for the start of the show on Wednesday.
