The BeeHolder, Summer 2014
Roy Norris is currently writing an apiary report which will include requirements for equipment into next year. The apiary is currently being looked after by 2 teams of 2 beekeepers which is working pretty well.
Four nucs have been made and one* has been sold. There should be enough colonies to produce the required number of nucs next year.
Apiary training days have been well attended and feedback has been good. It is planned to have some basic bee handling sessions next year for new members.
* as of 23 June, one nuc had been sold.
The apiary team are doing a great job and have exciting plans for the apiary next year. Ed.
