beekeeping friends and associates 

for the Kendal & South Westmorland Beekeepers, 2019 helped Three more new BBKA junior certificate beekeepers and more certificates awarded amongst our members including another good year of Basic Assessment and Bee Health Modules. Also, With K&SWBA support, Heron Hill Primary school was awarded a defra green action award for beekeeping with youngsters. We have welcomed a record number of new members, supplying them with new colonies and expert support, whilst helping the community as well. A good year all in all.

Although 2020 seems to have started poorly from the view of meetings, due to Corona virus, 

we hope you at least enjoy more time with your bees

Handy Checklist

and let us know

if it helps !

This check list is for any of you who have ever gone all the way to your apiary and then wished you'd scanned through one of these before you'd left the place where you keep your bee stuff.

Just download it, print and fold it to form a vertical strip. Then laminate it for use with a washable pen or chinagraph pencil.
