PRESIDENTS MONTHLY LETTER
Yet again we had a great turn out for the last meeting, and I am so pleased everyone can enjoy our monthly meetings. They are a brilliant opportunity to catch up, exchange views, discuss things with other beekeepers and compare conditions across our region. As you may have noticed we like to add some element of education to our evenings and last month was no exception, with a fascinating talk on queen rearing. I will admit that some of it was complicated stuff but, even if I didn’t understand it all, I began to recognise the effort we need to put into protecting our bee population. I will certainly take more time looking for parasites and disease from now on!
We also enjoyed a practical day for beginners (at Hilltop Hives in Mirboo North) with 14 students attending! The weather was good, the bees were, on the whole, chilled and we were able to see and discuss everything we needed to. I would like to Thank Peter, Bron and David for their top-class efforts – where would we bee without them?
Finally, we have a club picnic coming up and I think its going to be a great day. So come to the park and have some fun.
Enjoy your bees everyone; see you at the next meeting.
