This talk will describe in detail the preparation needed for a long, damp, cold winter. It will include a description of the colony in winter and how the beekeeper can prepare for the usual eventualities. It will take us from the end of summer right through to spring with necessary actions and the reasons for taking them.
Margaret has been keeping bees in several counties for over 20 years. She is a Master Beekeeper has won the Wax Chandlers’ prize for the best exam results and holds the National Diploma in Beekeeping (NDB).
She was Chair and subsequently President of the BBKA. She sits on the Education and Husbandry Committee and the Exam Board and is a moderator for all of the practical exams. Margaret teaches and examines beekeeping all over the country.
Immediately before the AGM a SGM was due to be held to consider two amendments to the constitution to change the offices of Chairman and Vice Chairman to Chair and Vice Chair respectively. These matters are not considered to be sufficiently urgent to make it necessary to hold the SGM now.
The SGM will be held at a later date, to be advised.
Papers relating to the SGM and AGM are available in the Members Area
In view of the current Coronavirus epidemic and Goverment Regulations it is not possible for any face to face meetings to be held.
