1. Congratulations to the 7 Members of HDBA who attained the Basic Beekeeping Certificate this year.
2. Geilston Open Day 1 September.
HDBA will have a stall at the Geilston Gardens open day, which will be manned by Tim & Carol Syddall, Nikki & Eddie Monaghan, Neil Sandison & Ed Wardle.
3. Sadly, Reg Brammer, an ex member of HDBA has passed away. We have purchased his colony of bees, which is now at the apiary. Reg’s wife has also donated some bee suits to the association for use at the apiary.
4. The Association now has 4 colonies of bees at the apiary (including those from Reg). Sandra Juster is managing the rota for those willing to help with inspections.
