The BeeHolder, Summer 2013

I have to apologise to Julie Pearce for not getting her article about the new post of co-ordinator for training and exams into the last issue of BeeHolder after she had taken the time to write it and send it to me. Here it is at last (this link) and I hope that members will take advantage of the opportunity to request training in specific areas, take beekeeping exams etc. Good luck in the new rôle, Julie.

Also congratulations are due to Wally Shaw – he spoke at our AGM a couple of years ago and is trying to breed varroa resistant bees on Anglesey – on receiving an OBeeE in the Queen's birthday honours.
