Thorne’s Windsor Sale – September 10th

Please see message below from Thorne’s with details of items on sale for those of you who may now plan to visit relatives in the area over that weekend – but from experience get there early!

Dear Beekeeper

We are now planning for the beekeeping equipment Sale Day at our Windsor branch.

More details below.

First, we want to tell you about our new plastic rapid-type feeder.     It is rectangular and will hold 6 litres of syrup feed.   The new design means that the hole in the feeder will fit on top of the central hole in a standard crownboard for all types of hives.     They are now available online and in our branches at a special introductory price of £7.99.

We now have a Facebook page.     Do check it out from time to time.    You can see pictures of our new site, new products and important news in the beekeeping community.    We would urge you to read the message from Andy Wattam – the National Bee Inspector.

So, back to the Windsor Sale Day.      Date is Saturday 10th September.   10.00am to 1.00pm       Address is Oakley Green Farm, Oakley Green Road, Oakley Green, Nr Windsor, Berkshire, SL4 4PZ  Tel 01753 83056
