beekeeping friends and associates 

For the Kendal & South Westmorland Beekeepers, 2020 was, as for most of us, a difficult year. In order to protect our more senior and medically vulnerable members many meetings were cancelled and although a few Internet Conferenced meetings were conducted we missed the face-to-face comradery of the association’s usual warm and friendly meetings. That said, both the active School Bee Clubs continued to function, inspiring the next generation of beekeepers, all within strict COVID-19 Government guidelines, and with the positive consent of the parents and teaching staff. All examinations for the BBKA’s certificates were cancelled but we are starting afresh this year with support teams to commence where we left off with Basic and Honey Bee Health certificate courses.

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.
