As previously advised to PBKA members via a recent email, we are working hard towards getting the new training apiary at Scolton up and running in time for the beginning of the season.
A lot of the preparatory groundworks have now been completed and the gravel now needs to be raked and wacked down.
We are therefore calling for volunteers to assist us this Sunday 6th February at 1pm, with a ‘Rake-a-thon’. So if you can, please come along and bring a sturdy garden rake with you plus a hot beverage if you like!
Also, if you own a ‘Plate Wacker’ and are prepared to bring it with you, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with details, so we can advise our Project Manager, Linda Jones, who will be running the session.
Directions: Note when you drive into the Scolton entrance, Turn Left (not right, up to the house) and drive past the old train towards some gates beyond that. We will get the gate open, so you can park close to the new site.
The weather forecast currently indicates some rain in the morning, but cloudy in the afternoon, so we should be ok. However, in the event of any change in plans due to the weather, etc. we will put an updated post on the website.
We hope to see you on Sunday!
