The club bees go on holiday…

We have now completed the temporary apiary move requested by the National Trust and for at least a couple of seasons we will be operating from the Kennels paddock area at Shugborough.

The National Trust have supplied us with electricity, a water supply and even our own toilet facilities (portaloo) to make life a bit more luxurious.

To move the bees from our old apiary to the new site we sent them on holiday to our Hilton Green apiary for a couple of weeks during November.

This was to ensure that they didn’t wander back to the old location by mistake.

The club would like to say a big thank you to Chris and Alan Brewin, Clive Stewart, Chris Shaw, Phil Atkin and the all the teams members who made this happen.

Work party members take a welcome break…

Another big thank you is due to Woody Woodward and her catering team who supplied tea and cakes to the members who came along to help with the big move. Thank you to you all.
