APIARY NEWS

OCTOBER 2018

 

        Our own in house Honey Show was held 29th September and with 19 entries was a great success with Matt Brint taking the first prize.  This combined with the end of season BBQ made for a very enjoyable afternoon and is a must again for next year with perhaps extending it to neighbouring groups and splashing out on some trophies?

        The next event is a visit to the big boys with the National Honey show at Esher and there is currently room in the minibus so contact Kevin to save a seat.

        As far as the bees are concerned there is the last of the feeding to complete and then to hit them with the Oxalic vapour when we have a cold day and they are all inside.

        Other Apiary maintenance involves weeding clearing and the pathways need lifting and renewing over the winter season.

        Other events planned for the coming months are the kids parties for Halloween and bonfire night with the first Dartford Beekeepers Christmas Craft Fair on the 1st December so spread the word and help make this a success, if you have some stuff to sell book a table.
