The expensive new shed was half built when we got the news from the National Trust that the apiary had to move. Alan Brewin was distraught at the thought of dismantling the shed and putting it back together again…
A plan was hatched and with a lot of help from Rosie’s husband Paul, (known as Kenty – see photo on right), his trailer and some willing volunteers, the big move was on.
In no time at all the shed was manhandled onto the trailer.
But, would it go through the narrow gap between the garden wall and the railings?
Very gingerly Kenty inched the trailer carrying its precious cargo around the wall. It made it, but only just. Phew that was a close thing…
It was then on to its new location at the Kennels, where it lifted off the trailer and placed into position ready to serve the club, keeping all our beekeeping kit safe and dry.
Alan Brewin was mighty relieved to see the shed arrive in one piece. A big thank you to Kenty and everybody involved for an amazing job.
