The Defra bee inspector, Stuart Westfield, visited the site on 1 May 2020 to inspect the new apiary. After examining all the bees Stuart declared they are in good health. As a result the apiary is now officially registered with Defra.
Stuart also said he loved the new signs made by children on nearby plots.
Well done to Beekeeper Sharon who has worked hard (with her assistant Will) to set up the new apiary. Their efforts have paid off and the bees have a good, healthy home.
It’s that time of year again – time for Members to pay their rent. This year Members will also need to sign a new tenancy agreement and terms and conditions as agreed at our Autumn General Meeting on 2 November.
There will also be free festive food for Members to enjoy, and Christmas craft activities for all the family.
Plum chutney, plum jam and honey mustard made from produce grown on site will also be available for sale and would make lovely Christmas presents.
After rent day we will be holding a Christmas wreath making workshop from 3pm to 5pm.
