Apiary Refreshments ~ Volunteers Needed

Dear Members,

As our Saturday morning meetings at Shugborough are now taking place we are looking for volunteers to oversee the refreshments on a rota basis. Nothing complicated, just ensuring tea, coffee, juice and biscuits are ready to serve after inspections have finished and everything is washed up and put away afterwards.

There is a rota up in the members marquee, we will need a couple of names per meeting, so if you could add your name against a convenient date it would be most appreciated.

As always, any members who would like to bring along a sample of their home baking for us to taste would be most welcome.

Regards

Alan & Chris Brewin

Your Invitation to the Grand Opening on Saturday 23rd April

Dear Members,

We are planning to erect our new marquee on Saturday 23rd April followed by the official grand opening of our relocated apiary at The Kennels Paddock on the Shugborough Estate.

Please come and join us from 10am onwards to help and celebrate with your beekeeping friends. Hot dogs, beverages and cakes will be provided for your enjoyment.

We look forward to seeing you.

Another Event Success

Dear Members,

Many thanks to everyone who managed to join us last Saturday for our successful frame making and box building event at Hilton Green.

It was rather warm working in the polytunnel but we managed to overcome the heat and complete the task in hand to the sound of some extremely loud hammering which was only temporarily interrupted to partake in refreshments and delicious cakes and scones home baked by our members.

Once again, huge thanks.

Regards

Chris Shaw & Team at Hilton Green

Just a few days to go……..

Dear Members,

Just a few days to go before our next event, frame making and box building at our Hilton Green Apiary.

Don’t forget to bring your pin hammer, pliers and a mug for your beverage.

We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 19th March from 10:00am.

Regards

Chris Shaw & Team at Hilton Green

A Huge Thank You!

Dear Members

A huge thank you to those who managed to join us last Saturday 26th February at the Shugborough Apiary for our first maintenance day of the year. We appreciate all the hard work it took to get our equipment and apiary grounds ready for the new season and we hope you enjoyed being able to catch up with your beekeeping friends.

Our next event will be frame making and box building which will be held at our Hilton Green Apiary on Saturday the 19th March. More details to follow.

Thank you once again

Best regards
