New Apiary required – urgently!

As members will know, the Beginners training has been carried out at Kethins Farm, Haverfordwest for many years. Unfortunately, the owner has decided to renovate the farm buildings to be more commercial in nature and has asked the PBKA to vacate the place as soon as possible.

This is a big blow and we now need to quickly identify an alternative location to carry on this valuable service for new members.

The basic requirement is for sufficient and suitable space for a dozen hives, enough parking for a dozen or so cars and preferably a shed or outbuilding for storage of equipment and for somewhere to sit and discuss all things bee related.

If any member has, or knows, of a potentially suitable site then please give the Chairman, Jerry Percy a ring on 01437 751357.

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!!
