Association Apairy Visit Sunday 15th

I’m planning to visit the association apiary this weekend to check varroa and fondant.

At least one of our new members has asked to come along for a look around – so I’ll make it an open invitation if anyone else is interested in coming along.

I intend to be there for 1.30pm. If you are planning to come along, please email me so that I can get in touch if I decide to postpone. The weather forecast is not good for the next couple of days but the weekend looks ok at the moment. I’ll email on Sunday morning if there’s a change of plan.

Let me know as well if you don’t know where to go, can offer a lift, or would like a lift.



PBKA Pub Meeting 4th January 2017

Happy New Year.

Maybe you are keen to start beekeeping and don’t know where to start.

Maybe you’re and old hand and want to pass on your ancient wisdom.

Or maybe you’re like most of us and are nosy to find out what our fellow beekeepers have been up to, get some new ideas, share anecdotes and have a bit craic about bees and beekeeping.

So make a New Year resolution to come along to the monthly PBKA pub meeting.

The meetings are at 7.30pm on the first Wednesday of the month in the back bar of the Neidpath Inn in Peebles.
