History of the Association

A recent conversation has reminded me of the existence of a digital copy of the booklet we produced to celebrate our assumed 60th Anniversary in 2006. It is no longer in print but can be viewed here

We had assumed that the Association started after the Second World War but this extract from the Ross-shire Journal "88 years ago" (date unknown but could be 2013 if I have done the maths properly) showed that we were mistaken. "Friday, 8th June, 1925 - At a meeting in Dingwall it was decided to form a a local Beekeepers' Association. A membership of between 40 and 50 was expected. Officials appointed were: Hon. president, Mrs Davidson of Tulloch; Hon. vice-president, Dr. Pender Smith; president, Mr D. Macdonald, Millcraig Road; vice-president, Mr. W. Simclair, Athole Court; secretaryand treasurer, Mr. Alex Fraser, Wyvis Terrace.

Hopefully I can find time to make up a Gallery of the photos taken at the 50th and 60th Anniversary parties.
