March 2020

Hammering and Banging (Date to be confirmed but it will be a Saturday): Once again it is that time of year when we need to make frames, boxes, check stores and tidy the branch apiary and the Club House. Many hands make light work, so if you can find time to come along to help at your branch apiary you will be most welcome. The day will start at 10:00am and somewhere along the way there will be hot sausage and/or bacon butties as well as lashings of tea and coffee.
