January meeting is the Annual General Meeting.

The AGM is the main planning meeting for the year and where Officers are elected.  All members are requested to attend.  Non-members can attend but can not vote and may find the proceedings a little dry.  Tuesday January 28th, 7.30 Waggon & Horses, Caythorpe.  A map is available here.

All members are requested to make a contribution during the year.  Please consider volunteering your skills, time, knowledge, or anything else.  None of the officer post require that much time or effort.  If you wish to propose any motions to the AGM please ensure the Acting Secretary is informed 10 days before the AGM so the proposal can be circulated to members a week before the meeting.

Heckington Show - Sleaford Beekeepers get Silver Gilt Certificate

Despite the weather (and the mud) SBKA had busy stand at the 152nd Heckington show.  There was plenty for members of the public to see and do.  We had live bees in an observation hive, badge making (mainly for children), honey tasting, displays, Asian Hornet information, Bee B'n'B kits (they weren't good enough to be hotels) and event a small flower garden.  Well done to ALL who contributed it was wonderful.  Plenty of pictures on our Facebook page.

Also thanks all our new (and a few old) friend who visited our stand.  If you are still wavering about keeping bees come along to one of our open meeting and find out more. Details above.  The Chairman's Report on the Heckington Show is published here.
