Best PBKA Auction ever!

We are pleased to report that the PBKA Auction held on Saturday 30th April was the biggest in living memory with a terrific selection of new and quality secondhand equipment, as well as a large selection of colonies for sale which had all been pre-checked by the Bee Inspector. There was an excellent turnout of buyers also from all over Wales, with barely a lot left at the end.

Many thanks to all those who put in lots, or purchased items and a special thank you to all those who helped set it up and run it on the day.

Great teamwork!!

Successful opening weekend of Pembrokeshire Beekeeping Centre

Friday 18th July 2014 marked the beginning of a very successful weekend for the PBKA, with the official opening of the ‘Pembrokeshire Beekeeping Centre’ at Scolton Manor by Edwina Hart AM, Minister for Economy, Science and Transport, together with the launch of Scolton’s own Victorian Walled Garden project.

Saturday featured an Open Day at the Centre as part of National Countryside Week and the ‘Bee Hive’ exhibition was overflowing all afternoon with members of the public coming in to watch the honey extracting demonstration in the ‘Honey Kitchen’ and live pictures from the ‘hive cam’! Members of the PBKA were also present to talk to the public and give hive inspection demonstrations at the ‘Pine Tree Apiary’.

On Sunday, we held another beekeeping training session at the apiary, which was followed as always with tea and Rosemary’s fabulous (and dare I say it? – famous) cakes, which she always keeps us generously supplied with!

If you haven’t been up to see the Pembrokeshire Beekeeping Centre yet, it is well worth the trip with something for the whole family!

We hope to see you there soon!

The members meeting of Pembrokeshire Beekeepers’ Association will be taking place as usual on Sunday but members should allow additional time to negotiate their way in so that we can start promptly at 2.00 pm.
