Beekeeping Opportunity

One of our members in the Scolton Manor area, needs some assistance inspecting his bees and has indicated that it might be an ideal opportunity for someone who doesn’t yet have their own hives, or who would like to gain some extra practical experience. If you are interested, please contact Paul Eades the Apiary Manager, in the first instance to find out more.

Last Reminder!

On 25th May, the new General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) come into force. This change to data protection law means we may not be able to contact you by email or phone, etc. unless we have your express permission.

In order that we can continue to inform you directly about all the activities, workshops and events run by the PBKA, please complete this GDPR Consent Form for PBKA 2018 and return to the Membership Secretary asap.

Unfortunately without this completed returned form, we will no longer be able to communicate directly with you after 25th May 2018 and may also have to remove your details from our mailing list.

Thank you for your co-operation.

Stores shortage warning!

We continue to receive reports of shortages of food stores in hives. The queen will be laying in earnest now, so it is advised that you check your colonies have adequate stores by hefting and add supplements if required. With the forecast promising more cold weather next week, fondant is the best option rather than liquid feed. PBKA members can get fondant from Jeremy Percy. His contact details are on the 2018 programme.
