Helensville Primary Working Bee – Details Below

Rodney Beekeepers Club will be having a working bee across the next two consecutive wednesdays to set up the new bee site for the Kids at Helensville Primary School. The working bee is across the school holidays. The Bee club will be starting the first week back at school all going to plan.


We are needing hands to help with the setup of the site please. We are also needing help with any materials that anyone can kindly donate. We are needing 6’2 posts for new fencing to go in. We are looking at building a seat the kids can sit on by the hives. Also any tools, nails and any lumber ( we need lots)  for planter boxes around the hives would be great. Soil for the planter boxes would be a bonus. 


Wednesday 30th September  – 9am – 1pm

Wednesday 7th October  – 9am – 1pm


Helensville Primary School, 29 Rata Street, Helensville 

The working bee is on the bottom field on the corner of Rata and Makiri Streets.  

There is plenty of parking, we have access to toilets and the staff room for tea and coffee.
