December Meeting:

A fun club night was had with the annual Bee Box auction taking place at the regular meeting on 9 December. This is the third consecutive year we have run the auction to raise funds for the Helensville Primary School ‘Garden to Table’ programme, in collaboration with the kids at Helensville Primary School.

The kids painted the bee boxes to a very high standard and bidders were “buzzed up” sufficiently to ensure a bidding frenzy, raising $825.50 for the school.

Well done to all the Helensville Primary School artists and a big thanks to those who bid on the boxes.
