Our last apiary meeting of the summer will be on 16th September in Janet MacDonald and Jenny Warbey’s apiary, which is on the grounds at Wildwood in Herne. The focus will be looking at various hive patterns, and it will be an opportunity to discuss advantages and disadvantages of several of the common (and less common) hives.
Saturday 16th September – time 2-4pm
Please can you let Janet know by the morning of Saturday 16th September, if you will be coming so that she can let the park know numbers to expect.
Wealden Forest Park
Park in the Main car park and meet outside the Main entrance at 2 pm. We will then sign you all in to the park, free of charge, and then will take you to Bee zone.
Bring a bee suit if you have your own (usual apiary hygiene rules apply – clean suits and gloves) and we have plenty of suits to borrow if you do not have your own suit.
Refreshments provided – please stay for a chat and some tea and goodies. If weather is bad then you are still welcome – we won’t be able to open hives but can sit in the shelter and talk bees.
