So, here it is, 2012!

The days are getting longer and the mild, wet, weather continues.  In a few weeks the queens will start increasing their laying rate in anticipation of spring.

We hope you have made a resolution to join Pembrokeshire Beekeepers’ Association this year.  Memberships are now due and existing members should have received a reminder.  But for new members, or if you have mislaid the form you were sent among the Christmas wrapping paper, the membership form can be downloaded for for completion.  (We are unable to provide electronic enrolment form or payment by credit/debit cards or PayPal so please don’t ask.)

A reminder that our AGM will take place on Thursday January 19th commencing at 7.30 pm at Haverfordwest Cricket Club (map).  Following the business of the AGM, which will get out of the way as quickly as possible, we are delighted that Frank Gellatly, the Regional Bee Inspector for Wales, will be giving us a talk on lessons from 2011 and points to watch for 2012.  Whether you are an experienced beekeeper or a novice, or even just thinking about beekeeping, this should be of interest to you.  Do come and provide a good audience for Frank.

Best wishes for 2012 on behalf of the Committee.
