Rodney Beekeepers Club

Welcome to the Rodney Beekeepers Club home on the web.

In brief: our next monthly meeting takes place on Wednesday 9 December at 7.30pm. There are no more Field Days planned for 2020, but club members are always here for you if you have any issues and need any help or advice. Our end of year ‘Bees & BBQ’ will be on Saturday 12 December at the club apiary. Start taking your bee pics now for the photo competition which will be judged on the day. Details can be found in the Calendar and will also be emailed to club members nearer the date.

A fun club night coming up: the annual Bee Box auction will be taking place at the December 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 have painted the bee boxes to a very high standard! Following the auction we will ‘Bee Quizzed’ by Kim on our bee knowledge – fun and prizes to be enjoyed.

Look forward to seeing you there!
