Hope you are warm & safe, autumn & winter approaching fast!
The Honey Show is the main item this month, the week following the National Show at Sandown Park.
As well as the newsletter, I have attached a timely prompt from Mary Hill [judge] as to what honey judges are looking for when faced with rows of similar looking jars. Surprisingly, the aroma comes last!
Also a firm note from Dick Bunting about hive ventilation in winter.
A churchwarden from St Nicholas Church in Barfrestone has a bee problem which I hope someone can solve.
Bees are not in the church, but behind a rain spout/guttering. It is 25 feet up & she'd love an intrepid person to collect them before they move in to the building.
Is that you [plus ladder?] Contact Jenny Hunt please.
Looking forward to seeing you on the 30th,
