WVBKA Association Apiary
Plans for use of the apiary are slowly coming together. The ideas we have are to have meetings at the apiary on a regular basis through the summer and to try to cover practical relevant topics with a bit of chat and a bit of hands on.
Outline of meetings 2017:-
This year meeting will be run every 3 weeks - May through to September. These will be on Friday evenings, starting at 6.30.
There will be an article put into the newsletter ahead of the sessions giving a bit of back-ground to the reason for the session.
The sessions will be a mix of discussion and practical, and should be relevant to the time of year.
Future topics will come from the members, and a plan to be circulated via the newsletter.
Spontaneous events may be added to the schedule based on what is happening with the bees and these will be advertised by email shot to members.
There will be tea and coffee (or beer) and a discussion session afterwards, enjoyment and learning from the sessions will be important. There will be opportunity for members to stay and chat as an alternative to going into the bees if they don't want to.
Currently we are building up the numbers of bees at the apiary. 8 colonies have been created in 2016 by splitting down the two remaining colonies. Dave and David have put a lot of effort into this for which we are very grateful.
