No surprises here, our May meeting is cancelled as you will have expected.
We don't know when we will next be able to meet given the current Covid-19 pandemic, but will keep you posted via the Newsletter.
Little has changed since April, except that we are able to be out in the open air with another person not from our household. Hooray. But not quite a meeting!
The bees have no such qualms: we've had lots of early swarms - Densole, Eythorne, Folkestone, Guston, Hythe, Martin, Ripple, River, Worth, and more.
Most of the members on my current list have been provided for or else have had swarms turn up locally. Please let me know asap if you are looking for bees.
Note: if you want to find a swarm collector, click on the link to the BBKA Swarm Collector web page at the top right of this page. There is a swarm collector map on that page to help find someone near you.
Stay safe and enjoy your beekeeping.
