Love’s Labour is not lost and this was clearly shown today when four members of the RBC spent about 1 1/2 hours preparing sites for 4 hives and two nucs. The hive locations were dug out and covered with weed cloth to assist in keeping weeds away from the hive entrance. The club is considering using a new design of base board from the Hive Doctor – who kindly donated one to the club – this will be shown to members at the next meeting and we suggest that members may wish to purchase same.
If so we could place a bulk order and receive the best possible price. The apiary has easy car access and good facilities for a social time after the field day activities. See pictures of apiary preparation – with Peter McNab, Bruce Burgess, Noel Smith and Claude Bee.
Not to forget the lovely coffee and biscuits provided by Jo Bee ( Burgess ).
