The Bee Brief (16 December 2014)

Following on from the National Honey Show, last month, four of the lectures recorded over the event have so far gone up on The Honey Show’s YouTube channel and are well worth watching. See https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiOtIebcpY0Zqqma0H5wLYQ It is intended that all of this year’s lectures will be up there soon.

Our Whitstable & Herne Bay Beekeepers’ branch has a stall at Macknade Fine Foods’ late opening (till 8 pm) this coming Thursday, 18th December. Why not come along and say hello to Keith and Tilly who will be running our stall, support the branch, and stock up on a few of Macknade’s comestibles at the same time?

BeeCraft will be holding another of their Google Hangouts (online webinars) this Wednesday, 17th December, starting at 8 pm. It’s not difficult to take part (or just to watch/listen) and the whole thing is explained here: http://www.bee-craft.com/beekeeping/hangouts/  Tomorrow’s session is all about ‘products of the hive other than honey’. If you’d like to send in a question ahead of the event, the link above has details of how to do so.
