Sleaford Beekeepers Beekeeping Course has been suspended by the venue we were holding it at. Closed until the end of May.
Emma's Tips - for March
- check equipment, clean & sanitise that which needs it and make a list of items that need replacing
- check hives are still upstanding after blustery periods
- think about your focus for this year and start preparing as necessary: are you wanting to get your first bees; catch your first swarm; expand your apiary; try queen rearing; enrol on a course or three, etc. Now is a good time to do some research and ask some questions before the season kicks off.
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.
