Tuesday 2nd March Online event - an excellent first attempt at this style of meeting. Thirty participants heard from 3 of our more experienced beekeepers on how they prepare for the new season. Opportunity was taken to ask questions of the panel.
Saturday 5th September - "Preparing for Winter" -2pm Fairfield Apiary, Orrin Bridge, hosted by Anne and Arthur Hill. We were fortunately blessed with acceptable weather and actually managed some quick hive inspections. A supportiing document is available under the menu "Useful Advice."
Saturday 29th August. Urray, Muir of Ord hosted by Jane Thomson. As you can see conditions were too cold for inspections. But after we had heard the history of the colonies the Q and A session made the afternoon worthwhile.
Saturday 15th August. Evanton, hosted by David Thomson and Mary Applegate. As usual a very useful meeting made all the better by the Haar lifting to cause us all to become over-heated! Very satisfying to see healthy and productive colonies.
Saturday 1st August. Findon Mills 2pm. A useful meeting. Conditions could have been better with the bees reacting to the overcast conditions - not ideal for hive inspections.
July 2020: Two training sessions for Novices were held at Fairfield Apiary and a meeting for our West Coast members was held at Lochcarron.
