†††† As we head into 2019 there is little to do with the bees except to check that they have still got some stores by hefting the hive and hoping that they have some weight to them indicating some stores left and to check that they are weather tight and secure and should we get any snow that the entrance does not get blocked.

†††† Aside from this, we have a couple of months to get ourselves prepared for the coming season by assembling frames and checking all equipment as March will be upon us soon enough.

†††† That said there is little more to say than to wish you all a Happy New Year from all on the committee and look forward to seeing you at the first meeting in February.
